"The Treaty of Neuilly-sur-Seine 99 Years Later" is the subject of the museum lecture this Saturday - November 24th. The curator Vladimir Anigestov from the Historical museum of Burgas will summarize the meaning of the treaty for Bulgaria by presenting information from original museum materials.
The Neuilly Peace Treaty is part of the Versailles system of treaties that ended the participation of Bulgaria and its allied Central Powers in the First World War. It was signed by the Bulgarian side, under the enormous pressure of the Covenant, by Prime Minister Alexander Stamboliyski on November 27, 1919 in the City of Paris suburb of Neuilly-sur-Sein. Ratified on February 15, 1920, the treaty in the next century proves to be the most decisive, with its severe consequences for our national destiny. From today's view of the historians and in the spirit of European understanding, some of the effects of the treaty are perceived as corroborable or subject to historical clarification and peaceful rehabilitation by all the heir countries of the warring countries.
The traditional Saturday lecture at the museum is at 11.30 hours, in the presentation room of the Natural History Exposition (30, K. Fotinov Str.). The entrance fee is preferential - for adults 2 BGN and for students and pensioners - 1 BGN.
