An announcement for the Census - Gorna Dzhumaja - 1946

AN ANNOUNCEMENT TO THE DISTRICT ADMINISTRATORS, ELDERS AND CENSUS COMMISSIONERS IN GORNA DZHUMAJA (BLAGOEVGRAD) REGION[1]

December 24th, 1946

Circular No. 3628


Drawing your attention to the great economic and cultural significance of the census as an enormous step for our new People's Republic, which has engaged the dignity and prestige of our people's authority, I call on you to explain to the broad masses that it is in their own interest to give the most precise data for the census. All data, particularly the answers to the questions in family form "A" should be inscribed in the appropriate way precisely and conscientiously.


BECAUSE THE POPULATION IN THE GORNA DZUMAJA REGION IS PRIMARILY OF MACEDONIAN ORIGIN, YOU SHALL EXPLAIN ΤΟ THEM THAT THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY FREE TO DECLARE THEIR NATIONALITY, THEIR ORIGIN, FREELY AND WITHOUT ANY RESTRAINT, THE WAY THEY REALLY FEEL AT HEART, IN THEIR SOULS, AS FAITHFUL CHILDREN TO THEIR HOMELAND. Naturally you will draw the attention of the census takers that they have no right to prevent the population from declaring their nationality as Macedonian.
