Hostages of the Occupation: an exhibition about the fate of Crimean Tatar families opened in Odesa

9 October 2020

On Thursday, October 8, an exhibition "Hostages of the Occupation" was opened in Odesa, which acquainted residents and guests of the city with the stories of 20 Crimean Tatars families who became hostages of the occupation of Crimea: 10 internally displaced, 10 families who remained on the peninsula. The organizers believe that such practice will contribute to the establishment of intercultural and interreligious dialogue, attracting more attention of the state bodies of Ukraine and the international community to the problems of the Crimean Tatar people and the occupation of Crimea. The exhibition, which will last until October 16, can be viewed in the Hrushevsky Odesa Regional Universal Scientific Library (Troyitska st., 49/51).
