Bulgaria first was sided with the Nazis in WWII, but in Sept. 7th, 1944 they declared war against Germany. On Sept. 9th the government was taken over by a Russian regime and the country became dominated by the Bulgaria Communist Party.
In 1946 the communist came to full power with the apathy of the West to help otherwise. One year later Haralan Popov was arrested and taken from his family because he was one of the leading Evangelical Pastors in Bulgaria’s Christian Church. He was to spend 13 years being tortured for his faith, and only by God’s grace was he able to survive and live to write this book to tell what happened.
