Ukraine: The Plight of the Crimean Tatars

Paul Goble of Window on Eurasia writes about the 66th anniversary of the deportations of the Crimean Tatars and the current plight of those who have returned to their homeland and those who haven't: “But because of the importance of where they live, their difficulties will not be theirs alone.”

    I am trying to find music/songs representive of the Crimean Tatars and their conflicts with the Russians during the ethnic cleansing. I need two songs re war and 2 songs with anti-violence/peace messages. I have not had any luck using online search and the Xavier U librianians have not been able to find any sources. Thanks for your help.
