The website of the Romani Studies Seminar at the Faculty of Arts, Charles University in Prague, has published an online popularization of its explanation of the rules for orthography in the Romanes language. The Czech-language online guidelines are available to all editors, teachers, writers and anybody using written Romanes in the Czech and Slovak Republics.

"Now we would like to complete our piloting of this operation by asking for your comments, questions and suggestions. We are asking that you read the material and send us your comments, queries and suggestions to the email address posted there. At the same time, we are asking that you share the news with people who could use this website somehow," Jan Červenka of the Romani Studies Seminar told news server Romea.cz.

The first rules in Czechoslovakia for written use of the Romanes language were adopted by the Union of Gypsies-Roma around the year 1970 and were promulgated at a more official level through the elaboration and official publication of a Romanes grammar in the Slovak Republic in 2006 that was produced by educators, most of whom were Romani. However, those rules have not been widely available to many users of written Romanes in the Czech and Slovak Republics before now.

Renata Berkyová: Concept of the Porajmos as a reflection of the marginalization of Roma in historiography

6.6.2018 13:25
In recent years, in connection with commemorations of the tragic fate of Romani people during the Second World War and the expansion of our awareness of the Holocaust and its Romani victims, a breakthrough event has been in the making. Apparently the most recent example of this in the Czech Republic is the state buyout of the pig farm located on the site of former so-called "Gypsy Camp" at Lety u Písku, which was preceded by years of relentless pressure on the highest state representatives by the relatives of the victims, activists, and experts.
