In a Europe where frontiers are falling at a historic pace, the fortified border here between Turkey and Bulgaria stands as a heart-breaking anachronism. The Bulgarians, Communist true believers given to Stalinism and other primary colors, have painted this piece of the Iron Curtain, a wire fence, an incongruous powder blue. Even more improbably, about 310,000 refugees have streamed through the frontier into Turkey over the past three months.

Standing amid racks of blue jeans at a local clothing store, Lubomir Kolarov said that although he does not have much in terms of material goods, he does have something more important: his freedom. Still, Kolarov, a Christian pastor who left his native Bulgaria amid religious persecution three years ago, owns none of the things that others take for granted, such as bedsheets, towels, dishes, and clothes and shoes that fit.

Milcho Leviev sat on a stool in the North Hollywood home he shares with his wife, Deborah, watching with obvious elation a video of a recent solo piano performance in which he plays John Lennon's "Imagine." This wasn't just any performance. It was held on Jan. 1 before 6,000 enthusiastic fans at the People's Palace of Culture in Sofia, Bulgaria. And it was Leviev's first performance in his homeland since 1981. On Nov.

The Bush Administration recalled its ambassador to Bulgaria, Sol Polansky, on Tuesday to protest the Sofia regime's continuing oppression of the country's ethnic Turkish minority, which has caused about 310,000 people to flee to Turkey in the past three months. State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said Polansky was ordered to return to Washington "for consultations." On the traditional list of diplomatic gestures, the action is less severe than a formal breach in relations.
