People Need to Learn History's Lessons - President

Observances of Europe Day and Victory Day were held in Sofia and across Bulgaria on May 9. "It is important to learn the lessons of history and never repeat the same mistakes," Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev said in his remarks at an official ceremony in the capital.
The President reviewed the guard of honour outside the Defence and Staff College and attended a ceremony for laying urns with soil from the battlefields where Bulgarian soldiers lost their lives during World War Two. "The ruins of the most devastating war in the history of mankind gave birth to an aspiration to peace and to the kind of Europe where we belong today," the President also said.
