I want to drop this quick note to tell you that by accident I found Vagabond No. 61-62 in my dentist office and started to read. I think it is just incredibly good and I want to congratulate you for the quality of two articles, the first one being "Free and Fear" written by Mr Georgieff.

This is the first time that I read such a clever and sharp article in Bulgaria. So thank you for that.

I've been in Bulgaria for four months now and everything I read and hear on the Bulgarian TV, radio and newspapers is mostly a panegyric of the government and its policies – when it is not a 15-minute report about the prime minister cutting a ribbon somewhere.

Also I would like to congratulate Slaveyko Penchev for his article "Am I a Painter." Same thing. Smart and brilliant. Now I can say that I am one of your n°1 fans and I am impatient to read the next issue. Bravo again and keep writing those excellent articles!!

Dear Vagabond,

We stumbled over the article entitled "Adopting a Bulgarian Child" by Dimana Trankova (Vagabond, No. 51-52) while waiting in the Checkpoint Charley Restaurant in Sofi a. This was our kickstart to begin an adoption here in Bulgaria. Like most people (including nearly everyone in the offi cial system) we did not know that it was even possible for foreigners to adopt according to Bulgarian law. We started collecting all the needed documents in June 2011. With help of our Bulgarian friends we managed to surmount all smaller and bigger obstacles on the road. Now, a week ago, our little daughter moved in with us. We have to say: Thank you Vagabond for this article! It simply changed our lives.

Dear Vagabond,

Please accept my salutations for your excellent Jewish Bulgaria book.

I do have a few remarks concerning Lilyana Panitsa, mentioned on pp30-33 in the book. She did not inform her private gynaecologist, Dr Benaroya, about the Dannecker-Belev agreement to deport the Bulgarian Jews, but Buko Levi, the chairman of the Zionist Organisation in Bulgaria and deputy leader of the Jewish Consistory.

King Boris did not favour even Plan B, as you assert on p30. He favoured a "Plan C," which meant no deportation at all, just resettlement in the provinces. Finally, there was no Bulgarian participation in the 24 May 1943 rally in Sofi a (p30). The rally was entirely a Jewish aff air. I know because I lived in Sofi a and my father took part in it. Any claim that Bulgarians participated is a fabrication by Jews belonging to the pro- Communist Fatherland Front.
