The Revival Process, also known as the Process of Rebirth (Bulgarian: Възродителен процес - Vazroditelen protses) was the official name of the forceful assimilation of Bulgaria's Turkish minority (900,000 people or 10% of the population) to assimilate by changing their Turkish names to Bulgarian names. It was enacted between 1985—1989 under the communist government of Todor Zhivkov. Those who refused were exiled to Turkey.
