“The topic of Crimea has always been relevant for our family, and as long as I can remember, we have been moving all our lives. But despite numerous attempts, due to various circumstances, the move to Crimea did not happen. Crimea has always been an integral part of my life, and every year we try to visit, as we miss our native places and loved ones very much. Crimea is the land of our ancestors, which is the heart of every Crimean Tatar! In our family, we never forgot and always told the story of our people, our family. The tragedy that scattered us all over the world, deprived many people of their lives, including the artistic intelligentsia, deprived of the opportunity to live and create peacefully on our land, will never be forgotten!
