"A Vanished World" exhibit on Wenceslas Square in the Czech capital for the next two weeks

The travelling exhibition "A Vanished World" (Zaniklý svět), prepared by the Committee for the Redress of the Roma Holocaust (VPORH) about indigenous Czech Roma and Sinti, held under the auspices of Prague City Councillor Jan Volf in the center of Wenceslas Square from 1 - 15 November 2017.

The travelling exhibition "A Vanished World" (Zaniklý svět), prepared by the Committee for the Redress of the Roma Holocaust (VPORH) about indigenous Czech Roma and Sinti, has returned to Prague. Through rare archival materials and photographs from the interwar period, the exhibit presents the lives of Roma and Sinti in the Czech lands prior to their imprisonment in Nazi concentration camps.

The exhibition is being held under the auspices of Prague City Councillor Jan Volf and will be in the center of Wenceslas Square from 1 - 15 November by the historical tram displayed there. "The exhibition displays photographs and archival materials that have been previously exhibited, but they are augmented with new material that shocked even me. For example, there is a document about how the Protectorate Interior Ministry viewed management of the camps. I believe that this material can change the assessment of the events that transpired at Lety u Písku and Hodonín u Kunštátu in those days," the chair of the VPORH, Čeněk Růžička, said previously.

Part of the exhibition is dedicated to Romani resistance during the Second World War, such as that undertaken by Josef Serinek, who escaped Lety, and others. The exhibition also discusses the persecution of Romani people on the territory of the Slovak State.
