Ahiska Turks

November 14 marks the 75th anniversary of the forced deportation of up to 120,000 Ahiska Turks from their homes in the former Soviet Union. Joseph Stalin sent them from what is modern-day Georgia to Central Asia, because he viewed them as a security threat. But now some of their descendants are moving back. TRT World’s diplomatic correspondent Andrew Hopkins reports from Georgia.
