Hostages of the Occupation: The CTRC will open an exhibition about the fate of Crimean Tatar families in Dnipro (ANNOUNCEMENT)

September 21, 2020

On Thursday, September 24 at 16:00, the ATO Museum in Dnipro (16 Dmytro Yavornytsky Avenue) will host a presentation of the album and exhibition Hostages of the Occupation dedicated to the fate of Crimean Tatar families who became hostages of the occupation of Crimea. How do these people live? How has their life changed? What difficulties do they face? How are they fighting for a brighter future? What do they dream about? You can get answers to these questions at our event on September 24. We invite you to get acquainted with 20 stories of our compatriots: 10 – internally displaced individuals, 10 – families living in the temporarily occupied Crimea. The event will be carried out taking into account all the norms of the quarantine regime and subject to all quarantine restrictions.

We believe that this practice will contribute to the establishment of intercultural and interreligious dialogue, attract more attention of the state bodies of Ukraine and the international community to the problems of the Crimean Tatar people and the illegal annexation of Crimea, and will also contribute to the observance of the rights of the indigenous people of Crimea and the early de-occupation of the peninsula.

Organizers: Crimean Tatar Resource Center, Museum “Civic Exploit of the Dnipropetrovsk region during ATO” with the support of the Democracy Grants Program of the US Embassy  to Ukraine.

Address: Dmytro Yavornytsky avenue, 16, Dnipro
