" At the same time in his last letter Anton Popov wrote: "I am dying for a new world which will warm to such a bright light, with such beauty, that my sacrifice will be nothing for him!"

      Anton Popov in his poems express the gentle love for his homeland against his people, expressing his faith in the recent liberation and unification of Macedonia. In svoitz reports that reveal suffering plight of workers, slash shocking images of exploitation of tobacco manufacturers, women and children. From the title of his stories reflected their content. Here are some of them: "The pain of our juzhnaci", "So work and suffer tobacco", "He otkradnuva unfulfilled childhood dreams," "Above the clouds are dense Pirin".

      In autumn 1941, together with his inseparable friend Nicholas Vapcarov, he joined the party work in the military center of the BCP. Anton Popov started the illegal life fulfilled with m hazards risks. He carries people from the composition of the Central Committee of the app app purchases and they prepared food, carry weapons m cash late at night, skillfully destroys traces of the watchful eye of police. In their illegal activities he involves his mother and sister. This head of combat groups.

      But the enemy does not sleep. The group is lured provocateur and a few months later breakthrough occurs. On 4 March Vapcarov caught. Anton Popov although there is some possibility to hide, but he did not take nothing. Deemed to carry on the work, especially after such a breakthrough. But police after his tragp on April 24, 1942 has arrested ..

      On July 22, the military court pronounced its verdict. The death was sentenced Anton Ivanov, Atanas Romanov, Nicholas Vapcarov Anton Popov, Petar Bogdanov and Georgi Minchev.

        This is the history written by the Serbain post WW2 propaganda. Now go and ask your father or grandfather how he felt about Bulgaria back in time.

          Now what I do not understand is where this hatred is coming from and why? Bulgaria have had many enemies during it’s history ( and Macedonia is not on the list !) , but this is just a history and it is in the past. Nowadays we do trade and have good relations with Turkey, for example.
          Why is this new propaganda against Bulgaria today? You have your new country and you have managed to get in to fight with all neighbors already (apart from SRB).
          Another thing that I do not understand is why do you get this way, instead of concentration into the real problem you have, which is inside your country. Put your efforts into building a more stable multiethnic society in Macedonia instead…

              Bulgarian Slavs are never to be trusted
              You want Macedonia? Come and take it from my blood!

              A prosperous, independent and free Macedonia for Macedonians will be the ultimate revenge to our enemies.

                The Bulgarian is funny. My grandmother had to fend for herself after my grandfather was forced to serve the Bulgarian army in sofija. Why don't you think before you post your propaganda.

                  When will the Macedonians in Bulgaria ( Pirin Macedonia ) get their rights? When will you admit what you did to the Macedonian Jews in WW2? When will you admit that Pirin was given to you in 1913 and was always Macedonian beforehand? When will you realise that Goce Delcev, Dame Gruev, Sandanski e.t.c were Macedonians who fought for Macedonia? When will you apologize for manipulating history and causing grief upon our people?

                  When all this happens we might start talking about friendly relations...

                    They thought the Bulgarians would help them. But soon found out they were as useless as the rest of them. That is what the Macedonians thought about the Bulgarians. Do you doubt it?

                      I am going to afford you an opportunity to elaborate on what exactly in that article is Serbian WW2 propaganda - and to back it up. You have one chance. Make the most of it.
                      Now what I do not understand is where this hatred is coming from and why?
                      Bulgaria (and by extension most Bulgars) doesn't recognise the existence of the Macedonian ethnic group. If you can't understand that, you're either completely stupid or have been living in a cave all of your life.
                      Bulgaria have had many enemies during it’s history ( and Macedonia is not on the list !)
                      Bulgaria has been an enemy of Macedonia for a long time. It has occasionally behaved like a friend, when convenient.
                      You have your new country and you have managed to get in to fight with all neighbors already (apart from SRB).
                      Our country isn't new, only its independence is. And we have disagreements with Serbia also, such as the church issue. So you've no need to worry, when they need to they act just as idiotic as your kind do.
                      Put your efforts into building a more stable multiethnic society in Macedonia instead…
                      Why don't you put your efforts into building a multiethnic Bulgaria and let Macedonians worry about Macedonia.
                      In the name of the blood and the sun, the dagger and the gun, Christ protect this soldier, a lion and a Macedonian.

                        Speaking of Pirin, feel free to visit Kustendil, Goce Delchev or Blagoevgrad and ask the citizens how do they feel, are they feeling Macedonian or Bulgarian. Youll get a clear answer. Claiming human rights issues in pirin area is a pure nonce. “It took pirin that it doesn’t belong” is a bit rough. Country boundaries are carved over the years, whether we like it or not, this is the reality. You would better turnaround from Pirin and concentrate on Kumanovo and Tetovo, cause east borders won’t change, but it is not clear about west.

                          I was forced as well to serve for a year and a half in the Bulgarian army, my family didn’t like it either.

                              - The Macedonians in Bulgaria enjoy full rights. Feel free to ask them.
                              - Jews in WW2 - the fact is there, but it is not Bulgaria that exterminated them, neither we were in position to negotiate.
                              - The Pirin was not given to Bulgaria, the land was conquered as a result of ages of Bulgarian wars. Belong to Macedonia beforehand is a false statement, as Macedonia did not exist as a country back in 1913. Maybe you are referring as “Belong to region Macedonia” – this is correct.
                              - Goce Delchev, Dami Greuv ..etc – This is correct!
                              - Please take my sincere apology if my country did make you suffer.

                                This is correct - Macedonians exist in Pirin, I did not say something else. We have Tracians and Dobrudja people as well.
