PH0T0J0URNAL CAROLYN DRAKE Circles of baklava dough rest on the floor of a former classroom in Uzkut. This woman was living as a squatter in an abandoned school, making bits of money by selling pastries to tourists at nearby Crimean beaches. Like other Crimean Tatars, her relatives were deported mainly to Central Asia in 1944. Thousands of them have returned to their homeland during the past 15 years, but many still can't afford homes.
