Lithuanian Tatars, a village of Forty Tatars

To the south-west of Vilnius, on the outskirts of the district, there is a village with an unusual name — Forty Tatars. One of the oldest Tatar settlements of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. A village with such a characteristic name could not fail to interest the activist of the national movement Zevid Gaziev. Who in 1968, as a young guy, went to Lithuania.
