With the Name of a Flower
The project examines why Muslims, who have been settled in Bulgaria for many centuries (the country was under Ottoman oppression for around 500 years before it gained its independence in the late 1800s), have been forced to change their name to a more Slavic-sounding alternative, a name that wouldn’t stand out or provoke comments.
