Holocaust Memorial Day Event: Film – A People Uncounted, the Roma during the Holocaust
January 25 @ 7:30 pm
Showing of the film A People Uncounted about the Roma during the Holocaust and the discrimination they still face today in many parts of Europe.
This is an excellent film, effortlessly weaving stories from the Porajmos (devouring) – the Roma word for the Holocaust – with those about discrimination facing the Roma today. Anybody watching the film, can come away with a deeper understanding of both what happened to the Roma during the Holocaust/Porajmos and is happening in many parts of Europe today. Please note that, due to the nature of the subject matter, the film is suitable for over-16s only.
Review from http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1848767/
“The Roma (Gypsies) faced annihilation during the Nazi ‘Final Solution,’ yet have been relegated to a footnote in history. Today, the Roma are victims of extreme and often violent racial persecution. A People Uncounted is a powerful journey exposing the tragedy of Europe’s largest minority group.”
