אנדרטת ההצלה
באביב 1943 נמנע גירושם של יותר מ-48,000 מיהודי בולגריה למחנות ההשמדה הנאציים הודות למאבקם של חברי פרלמנט, מנהיגי הכנסייה האורתודוקסית הבולגרית, אישי ציבור, אנשי רוח ואחרים.
אנדרטה זו מוקמת להנצחת מבצע ההצלה יוצא הדופן ולזכרם של יותר מ-11,000 יהודים שחיו בצפון יוון ובשטחי יוגוסלביה לשעבר תחת שלטון בולגריה, אשר נרצחו במחנה ההשמדה טרבלינקה.
