Cherkezia was a small independent state on the northeast coast of the Black Sea. Due to ethnic hatred, Russians organized hundreds of campaigns before they were expelled from their historic homeland and deported to the Ottoman Empire. At least 600,000 people lost their lives due to massacre, hunger and diseases, and hundreds of thousands of people had to leave their homeland. In 1864, three-fourths of the population of Cherkez were destroyed and they became one of the first nations in modern history.

Walter describes the genocide’s black periods between 1821-1822 and 1863-1864 These the author with work updates history to get international recognition of the genocide.
