GRTHM: Remembering the Holocaust against the Roma and Sinti: Exhibition #grthm #roma #sinti

More news from Eva Sajovic, who writes regarding a new exhibition for Gypsy Roma Traveller History Month, this time remembering the Holcaust against the Roma and Sinti in Nazi-occupied Europe.

Hosted at the Mile End Art Pavillion,  the exhibition promises to be a shockingly intimate and comprehensive documentation of the disenfranchisement, persecution and genocide of the Roma and Sinti communities, the photographs and personal testimonies challenging viewers to consider this episode in the context of post-war prejudice and persecution across Europe.

Lead-managed by the Documentation and Cultural Centre of German Sinti and Roma, the official launch being hosted by the German Embassy, the exhibition is intended to raise awareness of the murder of 500,000 people by the National Socialists, a fact which many forget in their consideration of the horrors of the Second World War:
