This is the fourth issue of a rare publication by the Crimean Tatars, living in Bulgaria. It was published in 1934 at the occasion of an event, held for the commemoration of the Liberation of Crimea.

The text mostly discusses the events of WWI.

The event was led by Müstecib Ülküsal (also Müstecib Hacı Fazıl or Fazıl Bey) and Najmiyya Reza, a female narrator, who are depicted on the photograph, together with other participants.

Müstecib H. Fazıl (later known as Müstecib Ülküsal, 1899-1996) was an author and lawyer of Crimean Tatar origins living in Romania. Fazıl was known for his active work on the history of the Turkish minority living in Romania and connecting the contemporary émigrés. His most famous work is Dobruca ve Türkler (Dobrič and Turks) on the Turkish population in the Romanian region Dobrič on the Black Sea, published in 1940. He was also an author of books on Crimean Turkish Tatars and proverbs of the Turkish Tatars in Dobrič. In 1941, he moved to Turkey, where he received a Turkish citizenship. 

The last text was written by Selim Vali (Wali) from a community of Tatars in Warsaw.
