Two Thousand Bulgarian Jews Reported Fighting with Chetniks in Serbia / “JTA” Jewish News Archive August 9, 1942

 

Increased anti-Semitic restrictions in Bulgaria and the recent warning by the government that all the Jews in the country would be concentrated in two ghettos have resulted in 2,000 Bulgarian Jews fleeing the country to Serbia, where they have joined the Chetnik guerrillas of Gen. Draja Mihailovitch [Draza Mihailovich], it was reliably reported here today.

 

At present, thousands of Yugoslavian Jews are fighting with the Chetniks and several of the commanders of Mihailovitch’s detachments are Jewish. It has been reported that Jewish newspapers are published by these groups.
