"Hitler and the King" lifts the veil on the extraordinary courage of a Royal savior of the Bulgarian Jews. It was a time when the genocidal assault of the Third Reich threatened their numbers with extinction. Yet all the Jews of Bulgaria survived. It was a unique case in lands where German hegemony held sway. King Boris was pivotal in devising this solution to stave off the Final Solution. Beset with dangers, he dared beard Hitler in his Wolf's Lair. The King felt his way through a minefield. He used charm and diplomatic cunning against the Nazi military and SS apparatus, and he won. Was Churchill right that Boris was but a weak and vacillating figure...or was Goebbels closer to the mark in calling him a cunning fox? This short book seeks to show that Boris has been a greatly underestimated man who masked a true humanitarian intent. It cost him his life. He sought not plaudits even when success smiled in extraordinary degree. Here is a tribute also to the valiant Bulgarians whose deeds are known, and who made Boris' stance possible. It is a timely tale, with Bulgaria welcomed back in the European comity of nations.
