Czech Writers' Society preparing book in Czech, Romany
The book called "Devla, devla neboli Boze, boze! (God, God - the former in Romany, the latter in Czech) deals with the problem of "differentness".
The individual works depict the history of Romanies and their perception of the world.
Both in reality and in the collected texts Romanies meet with support, rejection, disgust and pity, Kanturkova said. "The book wants to show that integration means that difference must be accepted by both sides," Kanturkova said. The publication of the book will be partially funded by the Education Ministry.
The individual authors will receive diplomas from the Society of Czech Writers. The project is held under the auspices of Dzamila Stehlikova (junior government Greens, SZ), Minister for Human Rights and Minorities.
