Ohio Senate passed a Resolution honoring Bulgarian-American Heritage

14 December 2023 News

Ohio Senate passed a resolution honoring Bulgarian-American heritage. The document acknowledges that Bulgaria and the United States are strategic partners and allies, sharing ties of culture, tradition, and common interest. The State of Ohio is proud to be called home by a large number of Bulgarian-Americans and their descendants who have contributed significantly to the economic development, multicultural diversity, and enrichment of all aspects of life in the State of Ohio.

2023 marks the 20th anniversary of the United States Senate's ratification of the Protocol for Accession of Bulgaria into the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO); the 80th anniversary of the rescue of the Bulgarian Jews by the Bulgarian people; and the 120th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the United States and Bulgaria.

The saving of Bulgarian Jews during World War II is recognized as a valuable lesson about the essential role of civic mobilization in support of freedom, democracy, the rule of law, and human rights. It is a powerful, positive example that inspires today's efforts of the civilized world to fight the modern manifestations of antisemitism.

Bulgaria, as a member of NATO and an integral part of the European Union, is seen as a strategic partner to the United States and a key ally in Eastern Europe, contributing to the stability of the Balkan Peninsula and Black Sea Region

The in-depth military and strategic cooperation between Bulgaria and the USA and the key role of Bulgaria for the security in Eastern Europe, the stability of the Balkan Peninsula and the Black Sea region are also noted in the Resolution.

The Senate session was attended by Consul General Svetoslav Stankov, Brenda Mooney from the MacGahan Foundation and her daughter Sara, Didi Patridge, president of BAC, Nadezhda Tanova, principal of the “Rodolyubie school”, as well as little Alex and his sister Kalina from Columbus.
