An Incident in Varna from the Period of Entente occupation of the city (1919)

AN INCIDENT IN VARNA FROM THE PERIOD OF ENTENTE OCCUPATION  OF THE CITY (1919) 

Senior Assist. Prof. Slavi Slavov, PhD 

(Abstract) 

The article deals with an almost unknown episode that happened in Varna in the beginning of 1919 when one of the top representatives of the Entente occupation troops visited the town. At the heart of the incident is the smoldering tension between the Bulgarians and the Greek minority community in the city. The conflict was triggered by the Greek prisoners of war located in Varna at the time, but it took place in the context of the new national catastrophe that struck Bulgaria after the defeat in World War I, aggravated by the patronizing attitude of the Entente authorities towards the local Greek population.
