90 years old

She was born in the village of Ayvasil, Yalta district.

At 4 AM on May 18, 1944, soldiers came and told us to rapidly collect our things because we were being deported. After all the Crimean Tatars from our village were gathered on the main square in the neighboring village, I was able to return home and pick up a few things.
My grandparents wound up in another car. We found our relatives much later, after arriving in Asia.

In 1990, she was able to return to Crimea and lives in Yalta”.
