      The Bulgarian Orthodox Church has been nominated for the Nobel Peace
      Prize, says the official website of its Holy Synod.

      This year Bulgaria marked 70 years since the rescue of the Bulgarian
      Jews during World War II. The National Assembly in 1943 decided to
      impose a ban on their deportation, despite being pressured by Nazi
      Germany. At the time it was the Сhurch that raised its voice in defense
      of the Jews.

      The initiative to nominate the Bulgarian Church for the Nobel Peace
      Prize belongs to PACE honorary member Lychezar Toshev.

      The laureate will be announced in October this year in Oslo, Norway.
