Naroden dom na terora (2015)
1h 41min · Documentary · 2 December 2015
The ugly and already empty building of the former Police Directorate is still towering in the square at the Lions' Bridge in Sofia. A century ago, the Comintern gave it to Bulgarian communists who called the edifice 'National House'. The irony of it all was that its history turned the building into a silent witness of the genocide committed against several generations of Bulgarians. After seven decades of silence, it is the first Bulgarian movie telling the truth of the monstrous atrocities committed there against thousands of victims of the communist terror, a pointless carnage that has bereft this small country of an enormous human potential, much needed now, when the nation builds a real democracy.
