Abstract:

The paper deals with a morbid topic of the history connected with the betrayal of the Bulgarian Communist Party regarding the Macedonian Bulgarians. After the autumn of 1944, in its capacity of ruling party, it obeys the pressure of Kremlin for rapprochement and establishment of federation with Yugoslavia. The Bulgarian Communist Party adopts without reservations Macedonian state ideology, propagandizing the doctrines for „Macedonian” nation, language and culture. The governing party applies various violent methods for estrangement of the Macedonian Bulgarians by violating their dignity, honour and liberty. This „unique” politics on the Balkans aiming at changing the truth about the nationality of the Bulgarian population in Macedonia, its traditions and ideals, remains unchanged until the beginning of the 60s of the 20th c.
