Good News

The student research project I am supervising, Oral History of the Karachai Community in Kyrgyzstan: Remembering the Deportations 65 Years Ago, received a grant of $450 today. This money will allow us to conduct interviews of the survivors of Stalin's ethnic cleansing of their Caucasian homeland on 2 November 1943. I am hoping we can fill in some of the gaps in the historical record that are not addressed in the archival documentation.
