68 years since Stalin deported Meskhetians Turks
68. Anniversary of the Deportation of Ahiska Meskhetian Turks.
Nov 14th, 2012.
The Ahiska Meskhetian Turks were deported to death camps in Central Asia 68 years ago, in Nov 14 1944.The Ahiska Meskhetian Turk's deportation, the most massive of all Soviet deportations, took place over the course of only a few moments!.
That period, during the middle of winter, almost 130,000 men, women and children were loaded into cattle cars and shipped to various locations, thousands of kilometers away.
The victims were only allowed to take three days' worth of rations and spent a horrifying two or three months on the road. Thousands died every day and the bodies were simply tossed out of the cars at every railroad station.Many Ahiska Meskhetian Turk's had in fact fought on the front lines of the Soviet war against the German aggressor. Thousands of Ahiska Meskhetian Turk's died on the field of battle, with many becoming war heroes. In 1944, the Ahiska Meskhetian Turk's stood accused of cooperating with the Fascist.
Even though many decades have passed, the Second World War is still an unanswered question for the Ahiska Meskhetian people, and this historical burden inevitably impacts the continuing development of Ahiska Meskhetian Turk's society today. Giorgians have created thousands of works that are filled with deliberate lies. From pollution to politics, the era of deception and duplicity has reached new heights.It is alarming that the people from the generation that survived the deportation say that living for The Ahiska Meskhetian Turk's today is more frightening than the terrible years of 1944 to 1956.
The Ahiska Meskhetian Turk's problems are ignored and sacrificed to the ambitions of certain leaders, probably take another fifty years for the international community to call things by their real names.The Meskhetian Turks consider themselves the indigenous people of the the Ahiska Caucasus.
Today the Meskhetian Turks remain dispersed across Eurasia and other regions.
Substantial Meskhetian Turk populations exist in Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Turkey, Uzbekistan and the US. The Meskhetian Turks in the US are refugees resettled from Krasnodar Krai in Russia. Although they still suffer from discrimination and exclusion.
The Meskhetian Turks have made significant progress in repairing the damage inflicted upon their national existence by Stalin. This recovery has been an incredible feat.
