Vasil Kaltchev About Baba Vanga Second Story

Story told by Vasil Kaltchev from the city of Targovishte

I visited Baba Vanga in 1960. However I want to tell the story of my friend Chisto, which is much more fascinating than mine. I was so excited, that I wrote it down – so here is his story.

My child got sick – he was 10 years old. His whole body was covered in wounds, that didn’t give him peace not in the day, not in the night. I took him to different dermatologists – they were prescribing medicines, ointments, recipes, but there were no improvements.

One day, I decided to take my child to Baba Vanga to seek her advice.

– The man from Targovishte may come in – said Baba Vanga when I just entered the yard infront of her house. I stood up in front of her and she said:

– Why did you come to see me? Don’t you know that in Dragalevtzi village there is a doctor named Marinov. He can’t speak because he doesn’t have a tongue. When he was a student in Germany, he said that Germany is going to lose the war. They arrested him, cut his tongue, and sent him to a concentration camp, but he survived. Now he is in Bulgaria. He is treating skin diseases. Take your child to him and he will find a cure.

Right after my visit to Baba Vanga, I head out to Dragalevtzi to visit doctor Marinov. We found him, and indeed he couldn’t speak, but he could hear and understand everything. He was writing his answers on a piece of paper. He thoroughly examined my child, and he prescribed some medications that nobody else have prescribed or recommended before.
