Some links to articles on Crimean Tatars and Crimean Germans
If you are cruising around the Internet looking for information on Crimea. Here are two articles of mine that deal with the history of the Crimean Tatars. The first is "The False Charges of Treason against the Crimean Tatars." The second is "The Deportation and Fate of the Crimean Tatars." My article, "Socialist Racism: Ethnic Cleansing and Racial Discrimination in the USSR and Israel" also has some useful material on the history of the Crimean Tatars. The Crimean Tatars were not the only ethnic group deported by Stalin from Crimea. The territory also had German, Greek, Armenian, and Bulgarian settlements ethnically cleansed by Stalin during World War II. My article, "Volk auf dem Weg: Transnational Migration of the Russian-Germans from 1763 to Present Day" has some information on the history of ethnic Germans in Crimea. A friend of mine e-mailed to me that Soviet historians are now relevant again. I am not so optimistic, but I have noticed that for the first time in a decade my blog seems to be getting hits from real human beings.
