Transcript

  • 1. Reuters photographer Thomas Peter spent time documenting Sochi's Circassian community as the city prepares for the 2014 Winter Olympics. Circassians are a people indigenous to the North Caucasus region, most of whom were scattered across the globe by a 19th century tsarist military campaign that caused the deaths of huge numbers. Many Circassians have called for the killings to be recognized as genocide, and have campaigned against the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, set to take place in the very same broad valleys and mountain slopes they say hold the bones of their ancestors. A delegation of Circassians hailing from Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, Turkey, Israel, Canada, Germany and the United States travelled to the North Caucasus to visit historic sites of their ancestor's homeland ahead of the Olympics.
