20180607 185100 LLSOn June 7, 2018, the official presentation of the book 'Masks down! Nationalism in the Balkans in the 20th century' took place in the Information Center of the Ministry of Defense.
The authors of the monograph - Naum Kaychev, Bobby Bobev, Yura Konstantinova, Kalina Peeva, Roumiana Preshlenova and Aneta Mihaylova - are attempting to demystify the noble prepositions that politicians often justify the minority and tyrannical attacks in six countries in Southeastern Europe: Yugoslavia, Albania, Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria and Romania. The authors share the belief that the public presentation of these topics from the recent past is indispensable for a better understanding of the current challenges facing the region where we live.
