If you hate Bulgarians, you also hate Gotse Delchev

In Belgrade, Gotse Delchev street was renamed after “Marshal Tolbukhin” – he was a “Great Bulgarian nationalist”

Because another anti-Bulgarian hysteria broke out around the celebrations of Georgi or Gotse Delchev in Skopje, since for decades, especially after 1918, for calling yourself Bulgarian in Macedonia, you were often shot in the back of the head or beheaded, and today in the liberal and “European” North Macedonia they will simply beat you up. But not to death, but with a more tolerable average bodily injury, this is what Gotse Delchev himself wrote and said about his origin and how his contemporaries saw it.

There is no even the slightest doubt that he is Bulgarian – he was born in a Bulgarian family, studied and taught in Bulgarian schools and wrote in pure and beautiful Bulgarian literary language. I assume that the mentioned facts are widely known, but still, for clarity and before the celebrations, I gathered them in one place.

Gotse Delchev’s letter to Nikola Maleshevski: Let splits and splits not scare us in any way. It’s really unfortunate, but what can we do,

when we are Bulgarians

and we all suffer from a common disease! If this disease did not exist in our forefathers, from whom it is an inheritance, it would not have fallen under the ugly scepter of the Turkish sultans…

Speech of Gotse Delchev in the memories of Kotse Tsipushev:

Greek priests and teachers are a hindrance to us. The time has come to work for Bulgaria, because we are all Bulgarians. We must work for Bulgaria, because she will come and help us reject the Ottoman rule.


Comrades, don’t you see that we are now no longer slaves of the collapsing Turkish state, but slaves of the European great powers, to whom Turkey signed her complete capitulation in Berlin. That is why we must fight for the autonomy of Macedonia and Odrin, in order to preserve them in their entirety, as a stage for their future accession to the common Bulgarian fatherland.

Gotse Delchev’s speech to the Bulgarians in Odrinska Thrace:

We, the Bulgarians from Macedonia and Odrinsko, must not lose sight of the fact that there are other nationalities and countries that are very interested in the resolution of this issue; an intervention by Bulgaria will cause the intervention of the neighboring countries and may lead to the dismemberment of Macedonia. That is why the peoples inhabiting these two areas must

alone with common efforts and sacrifices to win their freedom

and independence within the borders of an autonomous Macedonian-Odrina state, relying only on the material and moral support of Bulgaria and the Great Powers.

Here is another interesting fact. The letter of Nikola Delchev, father of Georgi (Gotse) Delchev, to the Bulgarian National Assembly from 1914.

At that time, he moved from Kukush and lived in what was then Upper Jumaya. 11 years have passed since Gotse’s death, but the letter will be answered positively and he will receive a national pension from the Kingdom of Bulgaria, and its granting is accompanied by a series of documents showing the merits of the entire Delchevi family to the Bulgarian homeland. Welland the request itself.


In 1901, my son Mitso was killed in battle, in 1903 two more sons, Gotse and Milana, were killed, but I remained living in KukuĊĦa, making a living by small trade and cultivating my properties. In the last war the Greeks burned our city, and also my home; my properties have been confiscated. My last surviving son, Hristo, cannot support me, because he himself is in extreme poverty and has to take care of the sustenance of himself, his wife and three minor children.

I am already 72 years old, and I can no longer work, nor do I own any movable or immovable property.

I am asking the National Assembly to grant me a national pension in the amount of (200) two hundred BGN per month.


Nikola Delchevu.

Why did Gotse’s father turn to the Bulgarian National Assembly with a request? Why didn’t he ask for something from the Kingdom of Serbia or Greece? Why did they issue him a document from the Overseas Representation of the Defense Ministry that he is Bulgarian, that his son died for the freedom of the Bulgarians in Macedonia?

And here is the inscription on the forehead of Gotse Delchev in the Bulgarian village of Banitsa in today’s Greece, placed by the hero’s sisters Velika, Rusha and Elena.

In memory of the fallen fighters in the village of Banitsa on May 4, 1903 for the unification of Macedonia with the motherland – Bulgaria and for the eternal memory of the generations: Gotse Delchev from the town of Kukush, apostle and voivode; Dimitar Gushtanov from the village of Krushovo, voivode; Stefan Duhov from the village of Turlis, Chetnik; Stoyan Zahariev from the village of Banitsa, a revolutionary; Dimitar Palyankov from Brodi village, revolutionary. Their covenant was – Freedom or death!

What has to happen to the mind of the North Macedonian woman to stop harboring hatred towards the ethnicity and nation of the one she considers her main national hero? Why are you beating the Bulgarians after

sing about the Bulgarian Gotse Delchev in your national anthem?

What kind of cognitive dissonance you must have, like the president of the RSM, to once say that Gotse Delchev undoubtedly defined himself as Bulgarian, and then to suggest that anyone who defines him as Bulgarian insults the Macedonian identity.

Archives are kept. Archives are alive. Even in the case of Gotse Delchev’s activities, the archives are not just alive, they scream that he is Bulgarian. You must have stopped the ears of a nation of very healthy people

soviet-serbian plugs,

not to hear the truth about his ancestors.

By the way, in Belgrade, Serbia, in 2016 Gotse Delchev street was renamed after “Marshal Fyodor Tolbukhin”, because Gotse Delchev was a “Great Bulgarian nationalist”, “led a pro-Bulgarian and anti-Serbian organization” and was “the long arm of Bulgaria”. . Point of contention.
