The museum is rather small, but the exhibition rooms are very modern and the objects very well preserved. The descriptions are also in English. It is an interesting museum about an impressive man and about an important part of the jewish history in Bulgaria. And also a good insight in the local history of Kyustendil.

Since I am one of the 48,000 Bulgarian Jews whom Peshev and his friends from Kyustendid saved in March1943 from deathcamp Treblinka, I am not 'objective' about this House.It was my second visit - this time with 6 members of my family. All of us were impressed by the rich documantation - exhibited very well.

Thi simple and informative small museum is like a candke in the darkness. A long due gesture of gratitude to a man and a nation who proved (in doings, not in words) that even in the darkest times, one can still do the right, moral, justice, humane thing. A mind provoking visit forbyoung and old about morality and bravery. Also,... More

We heard about the great and heroic saving of the Bulgarian Jews in the Holocaust. This museum tells in short of this and about the people that led it . It is a small museum. small enough so children don't get bored. and it is all written clearly and well put out.

The yard is very well decorated with benches and local flora. The first floor of the house contained very few but interesting artifacts such as the book which brought Peshev into the light of the world (only written in Bulgarian, Italian, and German) as well as plenty of pictures accompanied with captions in both Bulgarian and English. The second floor... More

I spent more than an hour reading about the life of Peshev and looking up through excerpts from old documents. What great deeds ordinary people can do when they have the will! Dimitar Peshev and his friends who also took part in the prevention of deportation of the Bulgarian Jews are a huge credit to Kyustendil and Bulgaria. If you... More

iDimitar Peshev's name is forever linked with the odissea of saving the bulgarian jews during WW2. He was then deputee chairman of the bulgarian parlaiment and managed to arrange that nobody touched the jews of Bulgaria and they were saved from the destiny of the other European Jews. He was dismissed from the parliament following his deed and was condemned... More
