May 18 marks the 62nd anniversary of the 1944 deportations of the Crimean Tatars.
I've stumbled on Mustafa Jemilev's bio: the current leader of the Crimean Tatars was born Nov. 13, 1943.
My head has quickly translated it into this: he was roughly Marta's age - around 6 months old - when the deportations began.
