The Netherlands 1 (of 2)

Almost 50 years since the glance of the unknown girl in white head scarf who fearfully staring out of the wagon was filmed in Westerbork transit camp, a Dutch journalist managed to identify her as Sinti girl Settela Steinbach. This will be a turning point for the Dutch Sinti and Roma community to finally gain official recognition as victims of Nazi persecution and genocide.

The Netherlands 2 (of 2)

How did the genocide affected the Sinti and Roma communities in the Netherlands? What are the main challenges in addressing the history of persecution of the Roma in education?

BEYOND THE RIVER NISTRU
Deportation, Starvation and Genocide

Romania 1 (of 2)

Under fascist dictatorship of Ion Antonescu Romania was striving to build an ethnically homogeneous country without minorities. More than 25.000 Roma, mostly children and poor people, were deported to Transnistria. At least 11.000 died of hunger, cold and diseases, and survivors lost their possessions and properties.

IN THE SHADOW OF SILENCE
Continuous Destruction of Homes and Property

Romania 2 (of 2)

After surviving Transnistria, the Roma survivors have lost everything. After World War II Roma were not recognized as victims of persecution. While the victims still can not get restitution for lost properties, among new generations of Roma there are many who are facing forced evictions.

RESISTANCE
Guns and Guitars (part 1)

Serbia 1 (of 2)

When Germans imposed extreme repressive measures shooting thousands of civilians, many Roma took active part in the resistance and joined the Partisans. Together with Serbs, Jews and others, they fought against Germans and their helpers. How much do we remember today about this united resistance and the contribution of the Roma to the victory against the Nazis?

THE ART OF RESISTANCE

Serbia 2 (of 2)

Through centuries Roma used art and creativity as a form of resistance. Music was used to carry and pass historical narratives. Even the Roma anthem Djelem Djelem serves to preserve historical narrative about the genocide of the Roma in World War II. What is the role of Roma artist in contemporary Europe?

PSEUDOSCIENCE AND THE REALITY OF DISCRIMINATION
Registration, Sterilisation, Assimilation and Ignorance

Sweden 1 (of 2)

Even before the times of the State Institute for Racial Biology, until recently when the Swedish Police was caught creating a secret Roma-register, Roma in Sweden were victims of institutional and state-sponsored discrimination and abuse. How does it influence the Roma in Sweden today, and who should be integrating with whom in the 20-years strategy for Roma integration?

UNITED COLORS OF THE ROMA 
Diversity of the Roma Identities 

Sweden 2 (of 2)

Many claim that Sweden is a “little Europe” with the largest number of different Roma groups and dialects. This diversity brings new opportunities and challenges. United, Roma groups benefits in a joint fight for their rights, but on the other side does one lose its unique history, culture and language characteristic for a particular Roma group? Is it possible to develop a united Roma identity and how does it work in a country with a long history of discrimination and marginalization of the Roma?
