A Roma Journey, an exciting new web exhibition from The European Library

EU, 8.3.2010 22:06, (ROMA VIRTUAL NETWORK )

Uncover the Roma’s rich cultural heritage with this ground breaking multilingual online exhibition.

With just a couple of clicks, visitors can view a unique collection of books, rare manuscripts, photographs, paintings, sound recordings and videos from the world of the Roma. Rarities on offer include the first ever dictionary written in Romani-Serbian-German in a concentration camp, traditional songs and tales, postcards and letters exploring the experiences of one Roma family in Scandinavia. This excellent online experience allows users to flick through a fascinating collection of curiosities from the beginning of the 20th Century, along with more contemporary content. Thanks to the collaboration of national libraries across the continent, the oral and written traditions of the Roma are now accessible to all.

Exhibition curator and Roma expert Mr. Dragoljub Acković hopes the exhibits will increase awareness of this pan-European culture. “A Roma Journey will have an unprecedented impact across Europe. By featuring digital content related to the Roma citizens through the 19th and 20th century, this exhibition will uncover the traces of a long living culture of travellers.”
