Dimo Kazasov was a Bulgarian politican, lawyer, journalist and public figure. He was born in Tryavna on 17 September 1886. He graduated from Ruse School (1904) and from Sofia University (1918).

He did this primarily by stirring large sections of the public to rise up against the persecution of Jews. Kazasov was a publicist and the editor of Bulgaria’s largest newspaper. Between 1918 and 1935, with brief interludes, he had been a representative in Bulgaria’s assembly, until the democracy became a dictatorship.
