Default "They call themselves Macedonians"

They call themselves Macedonians

This theme of “they call themselves Macedonians” continues throughout the early part of the 20th century.

Consider, for example, the experience of Henry Baerlein, writing for the Fortnightly Review, in May 1928:

"It happens that Macedonians who come to Bulgaria continue to call themselves Macedonians ..."
And goes on to say that;

“In Bulgaria, whether they are descended from a Macedonian who travelled eastward in 1878, or whether they are quite recent emigrants, they call themselves Macedonians ...”

Baerlein, Henry., “What is happening in Macedonia” in Fortnightly Review, 123, (May, 1928), pp.624-632,

The experience had been corroborated by British officials attached to the foreign office, in Macedonia throughout the early part of the 20th century.
