In Bulgaria, a country of seven million people and a Street Fighting Man - The Rolling Stones - Die 30 Größten Hits In Originalaufnahmen of the European Union sinceMuslims of Turkish origin comprise about 9 percent of the population.
People from what we now call Turk ey have lived in the Balkan region since it became part of the Ottoman Empire more than years ago. Fasting, going to the mosque, sacrificing and speaking in Turkish were banned. They said, 'There's no such thing as a Turk in Bulgaria. You're Bulgarian. All fountains with Turkish names were ripped out so there wasn't a single piece left.
Then they decided to change Muslim Turkish names. Two-and-a-half million Muslims died in these wars, according to Justin McCarthy, a professor Pop Radio Edit - Hands Up Squad vs.

Demonstrations became violent, protesters were killed and activists jailed or deported. In Maymore thanethnic Turks were expelled en masse in what became known as "The Big Excursion". Turkey ended up closing its borders during the exodus and some families were forced to turn back.
They set about reviving and rediscovering their Islamic and cultural heritage. Inthe Bulgarian parliament condemned the previous poli cies of assimilation. Nevertheless today, covert discrimination against Bulgaria's Turks persists as does more blatant racism from extreme nationalists and far-right political parties.
Bulgaria's Turks continue to face challenges as they look to achieve complete religious freedom, education in Turkish, their cultural heritage and to fight for Мовчати (Modinha Mix (Модинья)) - Скрябін - Колекційне Видання (Box Set) in a land they've inhabited for generations. The year marked the th anniversary of the Balkan Wars, and at the time I wanted to make a historical documentary about the wars.
But during my research I realised just how little we know about what really happened in Bulgaria during the wars. I discovered that the issue was much bigger than I initially thought, and that the legacy of the Balkan Wars continues. In NovemberI travelled 12,km across Bulgaria and spoke with more than Turkish families who suffered under Bulgaria's policies towards Turks.
Even though we in Turkey live just two hours away, we knew nothing about the pain and suffering of Bulgarian Turks. I spent three weeks speaking with politicians, historians, and families. I was shocked to learn that they still struggled for their rights and freedoms in For me, Bulgaria was a European Union country and things should have changed a long time ago.
But they had not. Elderly people cried the moment they heard the word "Turkey", and the common reaction was people hugging me tightly and shouting "Welcome! It was incredible. Even though I've been making documentaries for quite a long time now and have been in many countries, this was the most moving experience. I was certain that there was a very deep pain behind this. The more we spoke, the deeper I got into the stories of how they were forced to regret their identity, to forget their mother tongue, to give up their religion and even change their names into Bulgarian ones.
Then they took me to their graveyards. This was another shock for me because most of the gravestones were broken or names were scratched on to them. This happened during the Communist era when Turkish people were forced to change their names.
The regime wanted to destroy all the evidence of Turkish identity, so they broke or destroyed all the graves which had Turkish names. It was the first time I realised how important it was for them to keep their names.
Some people even died for this. After three weeks of collecting stories, I came back to Turkey and started to write the script. Meanwhile, I was chasing historians to interview. Everybody told me it was impossible to get those interviews because they both were living in the US and overbooked, and I was quite late to arrange an interview with them.
After weeks of trying I was just about to give up when I remembered it would not be the first time that I had managed an impossible task. People told me it was impossible to film the largest Turkish street gang, which had never been filmed before, but I was able to and I made the documentary 36 Boys.
So I kept trying and after a while fate decided to help me. I got a phone call from one of my journalist friends who knew I was trying to reach McCarthy or Karpat, and he said: "You will not believe who is coming to Istanbul for a conference! There was a small detail that hit us on the first day: the weather.
It was really difficult for us to get used to the weather and to work outside. We could not work more than three or four hours in the first days. We stayed in Bulgaria for almost a month and met people who shared their untold stories with us. Мовчати (Modinha Mix (Модинья)) - Скрябін - Колекційне Видання (Box Set) witnessed the inner and painful side of the Bulgarian Turks' history. Most of the time I could not help crying during the interviews and tried to look elsewhere to stop, but then I saw the cameraman and the soundman were also crying.
I think this was one of the most sincere, emotional, sad stories I have ever filmed. And more importantly, it was a hidden story, which happened so close to us. As a storyteller I feel proud of delivering this precious story which was entrusted to me. RussiaBulgariaEuropeInvestigative.
