Members of Europe's Roma Community Travel to Israel to Learn About Holocaust and How to Raise Awareness of Their Own Genocide

FSWC Reports:


Yad Vashem is used to seeing emotional visits. But the group that arrived at the International School of Holocaust Studies from Slovakia appeared to be particularly moved. It may have to do with the fellowship of victims, the shared fate of two people singled out by the Nazis for annihilation that are now cooperating in an effort to commemorate the past and educate people about it.

This was the first time that nearly all delegation members, 18 of 20, all teachers, were gypsies from the Roma community.
