At the historical site of a former forced labour camp, the workshop will initially deal with the situation of Sinti and Roma during the National Socialist era. Members of the minority were systematically persecuted, exploited and murdered in Germany and Europe. According to estimates fielen 500,000 people were victims of the genocide. The survivors and their relatives were confronted with racism even after the Second World War. The second part of the workshop will deal with the current situation of various groups of Roma and Sinti in Germany. The focus will be on political and media debates as well as structural disadvantages and experiences of racism in everyday life.
