- Commissariat for Jewish Questions
Founded in 1940
The Bulgarian government created in 1940 the Komisarstvo Evreyskite Vaprosi to implement and oversee Jewish policies. The KEV was headed by Alexander Belev, an attorney just returned from Germany, where he had studied the Nuremberg Laws to help write the Zakon ze Zashtita na Natziata (Law for the Protection of the Nation). The KEV was funded by property stolen from Jews.
