About the project:
Context of the conference
In many totalitarian countries minorities were not considered of the perfect race, or did not fit into the ideology of the totalitarian societies. The Roma were seen by the Nazis as being inferior, they were not as good a human being as the superior race and in October 1939 all Roma were ordered to be sent to concentration camps. During this period, Roma were subjected to genocide and totally denied of their civil rights. All these years, it was not spoken much about the Roma and Sinti Holocaust during the World War II. Discrimination against them and violation of their rights are still prevalent in today’s Europe. Context of the conference
The conference is envisaged to give introduction to the Roma Holocaust and HRE topic. The methodology is based on NFE methods: using manuals such as: Right to Remember, T-Kit-Social Inclusion, Compass etc. groups work, brainstorming, wall writing, association game, discussion, debate, simulation, audiovisual techniques.
