---> His contribution to Bulgaria?
In the third decade of the 20th
century N. Dymcoff lived in Tzarigrad as an eminent
industrialist and diplomat with huge connections in
whole Turkey and on the Balkans.
also owns him gratitude for another unvalued deed. He
used his diplomatic talent and managed to obtain from
the Turkish supreme authorities all the documents,
related to Bulgaria, that were kept in the common stock
for archives in Tzarigrad. Several carriages with the
documents, reflecting events from several decades, were
sent to Bulgaria. The incident, as Nicolas Dymcoff
explained it by himself happened in the following way
one day, when he was passing by Tefter Han, he noticed
that there were many archive materials, stuffed in sacks
for recycling. When he found out that the documents were
all related to Bulgaria, he wrote a letter to the
Bulgarian government to send immediately someone, who
speaks Turkish well. The famous specialist in Turkish
language Vl. Hindalov arrived in Tzarigrad. A big part
of the archives were bought off. Between them are the
materials from the criminal process against Vasil Levski.
According to the medic Petar Dymcoff
(the nephew of Nicolas Dymcoff) the story is as follows
Mr. N. Dymcoff receives a request from the Bulgarian
government and from the Bulgarian Academy for Sciences
if it is possible some important documents from the
Turkish archive to be brought in Bulgaria. Nicolas
Dymcoff tells them to keep it quiet on the matter and to
leave it to him to find the appropriate moment.
As a conclusion, in 1934 there were 8
carriages with the valuable documents that arrived in
liberated Bulgaria. Engineer Nicolas Dymcoff managed
with his own efforts to deliver to his country the
valuable archive materials, entirely connected with our
national memory and history.
