However, the Karaimite Jews maintained a distinction between themselves and the real Karaimites until Seraya Shapshal began to breach the boundaries. Subsequently they expelled Seraya Shapshal in 1919 because of his friendliness towards real Karaimites.
In 1931 the same Karaimite Jews attended the socialist conference in Moscow to eliminate Judaism and during WW2 cashing in again on their history of pretending to be Karaimites when it suited them, the Karaimite Jews under Tuvia Levi-Babovich then colluded with the Nazis in Lutsk, Kiev, Babi Yar even as far as Krasnodar to eradicate the real Karaimites.
Meanwhile Seraya Shapshal had already been received well by the Karaimite Karaylar in Poland back in 1928 and during WW2 attempted to save as many Karaimites as he could by identifying them as Crimean Karaites.
