Hakan Kirimu, The Crimean Tatar nationalist organization "Conscience " : Fact or police invention? It is known that during the early 1910's there was a remarkable degree of underground nationalistic activities among the Crimean Tatars, some of which were connected with the "Fatherland Society" which had been founded by the Crimean Tatar students in Turkey. The recently disclosed documents in the archives of the tsarist police attribute most of such activities in 1910 to a certain Crimean Tatar nationalist organization called "Conscience Society." Though as yet no other authentic source corroborates this information, these documents present the characteristic outlook and behavior of the tsarist police toward any nationalistically-colored stir among the Crimean Tatars.
