VISUAL ARCHIVE OF ASSIMILATION

Assimilation of Turks and Pomaks in Bulgaria during Socialism
(1945 – 1989)

What is it about

In Bulgaria, almost 40 years after the last repression of the Turkish minority at the end of the communist regime, there is no visual archive of their long repression.

Photographs documenting their renaming, displacement and expulsion are either scattered in private and public archives in Bulgaria, Turkey and around the world, or are missing.
