Righteous Among the Nations Attestation for Bulgarian Hero Spiro Denkof.
Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:
This attestation was granted to Spiro Denkof in 1971 for risking his life to save Jews in Bulgaria during the "epoch of extermination." Denkof had lived in the Jewish Quarter of Sofia, and helped Jewish families in need, providing them with food and money. He smuggled Jews expelled from Sofia over the border to Romania and eventual freedom in Palestine. After the war, Denkof himself was arrested and imprisoned for helping Jews with illegal immigration to Palestine. His Jewish friends eventually supported his application for citizenship in Israel. In 1971 Denkof was recognized as a Righteous Among the Nations.
