“…don’t forget the photos, it’s very important…’. The Nazi Persecution of Central German Sinti and Roma”.

In 1943 thousands of German Roma and Sinti were deported to the death camp in Auschwitz.

This exhibition traces the experience of nine German Roma families during the Nazi Holocaust.

The exhibition is a collaboration between the University of Liverpool and the Alternatives Jugendzentrum Dessau.

The exhibition will be on display in Longford Community Resources Clg. offices in Templemichael, from May 26 to June 3.

The exhibition will be open from 10am – 4pm Monday to Friday.

The aims of the project are to support Roma and New Communities in Longford to:
*have full and equal access to basic services;
