Exarh Stefan I  6607a

Exarh Stefan I 6607a


Exarh Stefan I (known as Archbishop Stefan of Sofia) is one of the rescuers who helped Jewish people to escape from the Nazi Holocaust during World War II. Arcbishop Stefan got a major role of stopping the German Nazi demanded deportation of the Bulgarian Jews (about 50 000) to camps in Poland. My understanding is this monument is built in Shiroka Laka (Stefan's birthplace) recently by grateful Jews/Israel.
