Saide Arifova

Saide Arifova (b. ~1916) is a Crimean Tatar woman from Bakhchisaray, Crimea, Ukraine, who saved more than 88 Crimeans Jews in 1942-1943. [ru icon [] ] She is one of the Righteous Among the Nations. During the Nazi occupation of Crimea she worked as a kindergarten director and managed to forge documents, sourcing Jewish children's ethnicity. She also managed to conceal children from Kerch orphanage, who were prepared to be sent to Germany for inhuman medical experiment. Nazis tortured her, considering her suspect.

Despite her heroic behavior during the occupation and the Holocaust, she was deported to Uzbek SSR during Sürgün, as the Crimean Tatars were founded collectively guilty of collaborationism. Only after Perestroika did she return to Crimea. [ru icon [ see photo] ]
