Exhibition "A Vanished World" about indigenous Czech Roma and Sinti again on display in Prague
The traveling exhibition "A Vanished World" ("Zaniklý svět") about the indigenous Czech Roma and Sinti that has been created by the Committee for the Redress of the Roma Holocaust (Výbor pro odškodnění romského holocaustu - VPORH) is returning to Prague. Through rare archival materials and photographs, the exhibition presents the lives of Roma and Sinti in the Czech lands prior to their imprisonment in the Nazi concentration camps.
The exhibition will be available for daily viewing by the public in Prague 7 on Strossmayerovo náměstí in front of the Church of Saint Anthony (sv. Antonína Paduánského) from 25-27 September. Jan Čižinský, the Mayor of Prague 7, has given his auspices to it.
"This exhibition displays archival materials and photographs that have been exhibited previously, augmented by new materials that even I have found startling. For example, there is a document from the Interior Ministry of the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia about their stance on the question of how the camps should be managed. I believe these materials can change the assessment of the events that transpired at the camps for Roma in Hodonín u Kunštátu and Lety u Písku," Čeněk Růžička, chair of the VPORH, said when the exhibition was displayed last month.
