Zgorigrad x 1966
From enforced nationalization after WW II, to decades of censorship and propaganda, the society in Communist Bulgaria has been under authoritative duress. While nobody today would dare to defend fascism, many still justify communism, a political regime that killed over 100 million people worldwide. On the First of May 1966 after several days of heavy showers, the wall of mine "Plakalnitsa" collapsed at 11:30am. Gigantic wave of silt and mud buried Zgorigrad village and the city of Vratsa. The flood flattens everything to the ground, killing more than five hundred people. After the tragedy, the body of my great grandmother was found more than fifteen kilometres away from her house. The truth comes to light many years after the flood.
