1864 The Circassian Genocide

1864 The Circassian Genocide is an in depth look at the fate of the Circassians after their nation was destroyed by Imperial Russia in the 19th century and how the survivors of the genocide were ethnically cleansed from the North Caucasus into Ottoman Turkey to end up in Turkey, Syria, and Jordan. The Winter Olympics in February 2014 took place in Sochi in the North Caucasus which was a deportation point for the Circassians where thousands of them died and were buried there in unmarked mass graves. Olympic facilities were built while Russia denies there ever was a genocide.
