33 graves of Bulgarian soldiers found in necropolis by Bitola – wartime registers

Date: 01.11.2007
The wartime registers contain information about a total of 33 graves of Bulgarian soldiers who died in World War I and were buried in the necropolis of an antique town Heraclea by Bitola, Bozhidar Dimitrov, director of the National Museum of History said, as cited by FOCUS News Agency. He commented on an article published in Macedonian Dnevnik daily that reads that a grave of a Bulgarian soldier was uncovered in excavations of archaeologist Anica Georgieva. Prof. Dimitrov supposes that the grave dates back to the 1916 fights, when Bulgarian troops conquered Bitola. ‘Our wartime registers I have for the whole of Macedonia read that 33 Bulgarian soldiers were buried in the grave in the Heraclea and another seven graves in the yard of the St. Nedelya Church have been found', he says.
