We are happy and gratified that Bulgaria proudly assumes its well deserved place on the map of the nations and communities that are dedicated to upholding the commitments of the Stockholm Declaration and working together to safeguard the historical record. Accession as a full member is not the end of the road but just another starting point. We still need – as a society and state – to come to terms with the events during the Holocaust that are now still seen by many as uncomfortable. Nations and societies that have successfully dealt with the past can face the present and the future with confidence and self-esteem. We are particularly proud that Bulgaria has adopted the IHRA Working Definition of Antisemitism and has appointed a national coordinator on combatting antisemitism. We also recognize the efforts of the Bulgarian EU Presidency towards making IHRA’s agenda more visible among the EU institutions and membership.
