Look at the past and build the future of young Roma


Background of the project

In EU society the awareness of the violation of human rights, democracy and freedom linked to Nazism and Stalinism and the dramatic implications of war, today is fundamental to play an active role to preserve the future, remembering and not repeating the mistakes done in the past.
In such occasion Roma have been persecuted as minority group. The oppression and the intolerance towards the Roma in many European countries last for too long. This persecution culminated throughout the Nazi regime when systematically were killed a lot of Roma and other minorities, followed by inhuman treatment. During this period, Roma were subjected to genocide and totally deprived of their civil rights. Discrimination against them and violation of their rights are still prevalent in today’s Europe.
