Languages of publication



The basis for this contribution is the archival document Přínos Čechů Bulharsku (The Contribution of Czechs to Bulgaria), composed in 1968 by an unknown Czech. The manuscript was filed in the archives of the Czechoslovak Club of T. G. Masaryk in Sofia when it was discovered by the author of this edition in 2019. In keeping with the title, or rather the overall intention of his study, the unknown author of the document attempts to create a complex overview of positive cases of “contributions of Czechs to Bulgaria”, with emphasis on mentioning as many as possible of the Czechs who had been active in Bulgarian territory and in some way excelled and contributed to the country’s development. Owing to the extraordinary (and personal) familiarity of the author with the issue of Czechs living in Bulgaria, his work contains an abundance of references to the activities of Czechs in this country, including a great deal of information about people and facts that had previously only been partially known of, or had been entirely unknown. The text is supplemented with introductory comments by the editor on the question of the identity of the author of the text, an editorial commentary on the process of rendering the manuscript into a published format, and continuous explanatory footnotes.
