Background Info:
Crimea was the scene of some of the most bloody battles in World War II. The Germans suffered heavy casualties as they tried to advance through the isthmus linking Crimea to the Ukrainian mainland at Perekop in the summer of 1941. Once the German army broke through, they occupied most of Crimea, with the exception of the city of Sevastopol (given the title of Hero City later) which held out from October 1941 until July 4, 1942, when the Germans finally captured the city. From 1 September 1942 the peninsula was administrated as the Generalbezirk Krim (general district of the Crimea) und Teilbezirk 'and sub-district' Taurien by the Nazi Generalkommissar Alfred Eduard Frauenfeld (b. 1898 - d. 1977), under the authority of the three consecutive Reichskommissare for the whole Ukraine.

In 1944 Sevastopol was liberated by Soviet troops. On 18 May 1944 the entire population of the Crimean Tatars were forcibly deported by Stalin's Soviet government as a form of collective punishment on grounds that they cooperated with the Nazi occupation forces. On 21 May 1944, the ethnic cleansing of the Crimea was complete. An estimated 46% of deportees died from hunger and disease. In 1967, the Crimean Tatars were rehabilitated, but they were banned from legally returning to their homeland until the last days of the Soviet Union.
