In an official visit to the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, Mr. Todor Petrov, Representative of the World Macedonian Congress, donated 190 books to the Library, of which the majority are written in the Macedonian language. Mr. Petrov said that the collection is contributed by several ministries and they cover various topics such as Macedonian culture, folklore and monuments. The collection also includes the replica of a war helmet similar to those that date back to the age of Alexander the Great, who founded the city of Alexandria in 332 BC. Mr. Petrov also donated two ancient wine cups with the Macedonian shield to H.E Mrs. Susan Mubarak, Chair of the BA Board of Trustees, and Dr. Ismail Serageldin, Director of the Library. An original rare coin was also donated by Mr. John Todorovski of the World Macedonian Congress.
