Educational Materials “Nazi Genocide against Roma in Ukraine, 1941-1944”

insidethegatesThe tragic fate of Roma people during WWII still remains largely unknown in Ukraine and generally in Europe. The new educational materials play an important role in returning Roma history and culture into the history and culture of modern Ukraine, unveiling Roma cultural heritage and the tragic events of WWII genocide against them.

The new publication stands out as it makes extensive use of survivor statements, testimonies of those, who managed to stay alive in that war and Nazi occupation. Through personal stories we learn about the fate of the whole community in the times of extreme violence.

These materials arose in the result of fruitful artistic, research and educational cooperation of German and Ukrainian institutions, first of all the Bildungswerk für Erinnerungsarbeit und Frieden, Berlin and Ukrainian Center for Holocaust Studies.
