Why was this happening? I’m not up to scratch on Bulgarian Turks.
The repeated cycle of people killing each other due to differences in faiths, beliefs, and values.
What was the reason of his execution?
Op, can you add context/source? This doesn’t look quite right at this particular time and place, unless it was a "regular" (as cynical as it sounds) criminal punishment.
For most of 1913, the Bulgarians were at war with the Turkish Ottoman Empire twice: during the First- and Second Balkan wars. The first took a bunch of territory including the town of Svilengrad. I have no idea why this gentleman was being executed, but if the title is to believed then he’s a freshly conquered chap. Poor sod.
Probably revenge for the 1876-1877 massacre of Bulgarians by the Turks still not a justification for such an act.
I found some more pictures after reverse-image searching.
I saw the same picture some months ago. It had the same title. Someone in the comments sent a source explaining that this guy did something. And at all executions during this time were something common. Does someone have the source?
Here’s the source (that isn’t twitter of facebook) for anyone looking for more information, the title is a direct translation of the one provided by the archive that owns the picture
