Teaching about the Genocide of the Roma and Sinti during the Holocaust: Chances and Challenges in Europe Today
Polak, Karen
Intercultural Education, v24 n1-2 p79-92 2013
This article presents several projects, initiated during the first decade of the twenty-first century, that aim to make the history of the genocide of the Roma more known within the educational field. Some general challenges we face in teaching about the history of a group that is both the largest minority in Europe and, according to the European Commission, the most marginalized one, are discussed. We especially highlight the Council of Europe's initiative entitled "Fact Sheets on Roma History," the work of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance and the development of two educational websites, both launched in 2012. (Contains 2 tables and 20 notes.)
