Meskhetian Turks want exile to end.

On November 14, 1944, almost 120,000 Meskhetian Turks natives, including old men, women and children, were exiled to Central Asia. Most of the repressed people, more than 43,000 persons, including 22,000 children, perished in a way and at places of the resettlement because of hunger, cold, and diseases.

We Must Do Everything Possible So That Meskhetian Turks young generation living abroad to know how their forefathers were forcibly deported from Ahiska on Nov 14,1944 and sent by "the railway of the death” wagons for the transportation of cattle.
Soviet confidential documents have revealed that the decision was personally signed by Stalin. Soviet officials did not let them bring any private belongings and forced them onto trains carrying them to unknown destinations. During the deportations, thousands of Meskhetian Turks passed away due to poor nutrition and epidemic diseases. They were indiscriminately forced to work in camps.
Saying about this it should be noted that the state, which annihilated Meskhetian Turks Nation, the destruction of the Ahiska Motherland, does not exist now. Nevertheless, the oppression, terror and violence still continue.

Although it is crystal clear that the expulsion of Meskhetian Turks from their homeland is a violation of human rights, the idea of their return home has not been welcomed.Georgia, as a pre-condition of membership to the Council of Europe, promised in 1999 to facilitate the return of Meskhetian Turks to the country. Furthermore, both sides agreed to accomplish the returning of the Meskhetian Turks in a period of 12 years. However, there have been no concrete steps taken to initiate the process. Today, more than 400 thousand Meskhetian Turks are living in 10 different countries away from their Homeland.
