After three years of hard work by Aysha Maski and Ziya Maski, a historical book titled “Journey to Freedom” published in Tatar language and printed in Arabic script in Adelaide. English version of the book was published in August 2013.
Both Ziya Maski and Aysha Maski visited all the families whose story appeared in the book and gathered all the information and wrote their stories with a view to pass on to the future generations of Tatars.
This book consists of four parts. Firs part deals with brief history and culture of the Tatar people. Second part tells personal stories of 22 families and their arrival experiences in Australia.
The third part deals with activities of the Tatar – Bashkurt Association and South Australia’s Tatar community’s contribution to Australia’s multiculturalism.
Fourth part tells the story of Aysha Maski’s (author) childhood experiences in Eastern Turkistan (Xinjiang) in China.
Authors wrote the book in a very simple language that everyone can understand. Writing brief and interesting information about Australian Tatars, their experiences and activities backed by colourful photos acquaint readers with both past and present time Tatars.
We believe in time, this book will become an important historical, educational and multicultural resource in Australia.
