Under the rule of Nazi Germany, the Roma were persecuted, detained and executed. Roma call these events the Porajmos, which means the ‘Devouring’ in Romani language. It is estimated between 500,000 and 1.5 million Roma were killed, and another 500,000 displaced, dispossessed or had their identity papers lost or destroyed. This talk will give a brief overview of the Porajmos, and the devastating impact it has had on the Roma community.
