Object | Accession Number: 2007.494.2 a-c

Uniform hat, jacket, and pants worn by Nissim Farhi when he was drafted by Bulgaria to serve as an officer for a Jewish forced labor unit from 1940-1941. It was the same uniform that he had worn as an army officer during World War I. Nissim, with his wife, Carolina, and their sons David, Albert, and Mike, lived in Sofia, where Nissim was a private banker. After the Jews were expelled from Sofia, the family moved to Pleven and then to Shumen. The family returned to Sofia after Bulgaria was liberated by the Soviet Army on September 9, 1944.
