Bibliography and website sources provided by OSCE participating States in relation to the availability of teaching materials on the Roma and Sinti genocide

 

An estimated half million Roma and Sinti perished during the Holocaust. Today, the persecution of Roma under the Nazi rule is widely ignored, reflecting the discrimination and exclusion still faced by Roma and Sinti in our societies today.

In 1990, OSCE participating States recognized the vulnerable position of the Roma and Sinti in the region and committed to promoting their integration into society. In 2003, these commitments were acknowledged in the Action Plan on Improving the Situation of Roma and Sinti within the OSCE Area, which included a commitment to strengthen education about the Roma and Sinti genocide

Through its Contact Point for Roma and Sinti Issues, the OSCE’s Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) promotes knowledge about and recognition of the plight of Roma and Sinti during the Holocaust to counter present-day discrimination and racism, and to promote tolerance.

In order to establish what education and commemoration practices about the Roma and Sinti genocide exist in the OSCE space, for the first time, ODIHR has published a full report on this topic. The informtaion provided below includes a bibliography and website sources that was provided by OSCE particpating States in relation to the availability of teaching materials on the Roma and Sinti genocide. Further information is available in the report, Teaching about and Commemorating the Roma and Sinti Genocide: Practices within the OSCE Area. For highlights from the report please click here.
