“Before the war Bitolj had some 60,000 inhabitants, which were reduced to 28,000, for most of the families who fled from it to escape the horrors of war never returned. There are about 5,000 Sephardim there. The rest of the population is made up of Serbs, Rumanians, Gypsies, Bulgarians, Greeks and Turks.”
