75 years ago, in 1944, the Kremlin initiated an action ordered by Stalin to evict Crimean Tatars from their homeland. They were transported in cattle cars in inhumane conditions and many thousands perished en route to their assigned places of exile. This deportation/genocide is known as the Sürgünlik.

The film will be introduced and discussed by Dr. Huseyin Oylupinar (Turkish-Ukrainian-Crimean Tatar Studies at CMES, Harvard University).

Jamie Doran is an award-winning Irish-Scottish independent documentary filmmaker and former BBC producer who shot many films about the hottest points of the modern world and received four Emmy awards for his work.

Crimea: Russia’s Dark Secret reveals the current occupation of Crimea by Russia and its systematic and blatant violations of the human rights on the territory of the peninsula.

The Ukrainian Museum's film series and traditional arts programs are supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
