Czech historian from Museum of Romani Culture: Let's discuss what comes after the pig farm is removed from the Roma genocide site

23.7.2017 11:02

If the land on which the pig farm built on the site of a former WWII-era concentration camp for Romani people at Lety is actually bought by the Czech state from the AGPI firm, the Museum of Romani Culture wants to be part of the larger discussion as to what happens next. Dušan Slačka, a historian at the museum, has said so in an interview with news server Romea.cz (shown above with English subtitles - turn them on by clicking the gear icon and choosing "Nastaveni", then "Angličtina").

"As far as the fate of this place is concerned, naturally the Museum of Romani Culture wants to contribute to the broadest possible society-wide discussion not just within the Romani community, but with all of the public about the fate of this place, what it should look like after the pig farm is bought out," Slačka told Romea.cz. "We would like to initiate that discussion at international level as well..."

The artefacts found as part of the recently-undertaken archeological research at Lety will be given to the Museum of Romani Culture by the researchers. "The collections of our museum do feature archeologically-discovered artefacts, although unfortunately very few," Slačka said.

"As far as the so-called 'gypsy camps' that were on the territory of the former Protectorate, Lety u Písku and Hodonín u Kunštátu, we have a single artefact from Hodonin u Kunštátu... a shard of a bowl...," Slačka said. "I believe it is important, if the removal of the pig farm succeeds, for archeologists to research the entire area of the former camp, which promises an even greater number of discoveries."

A survey performed by experts from the Institute for the Study of Totalitarian Regimes (ÚSTR) in collaboration with the Institute of Sociology has ascertained that while the subjects of the Holocaust, minorities and tolerance are being taught in the Czech schools, the instruction is having no influence on some widespread prejudices. ÚSTR has long focused on instruction about these sensitive historical subjects in the schools and more than 600 teachers take its courses annually.

Outgoing Czech PM backs MP who doubted Romani Holocaust, says he has apologized and his words have been "misinterpreted"

7.2.2018 16:32
Outgoing Czech PM Andrej Babiš (ANO) says that he believes the chair of the SPD movement, Tomio Okamura, has already apologized for his remarks about the Protectorate-era
concentration camp at Lety u Písku, a site of the genocide of the Roma during the Second World War. When asked today whether he supports removing Okamura from his post as vice-chair of the lower house, as the Christian Democrats propose, the PM said he considers Okamura's apology to have been sufficient.
