The project “Recalling the Roma and Sinti Holocaust. Paths insider the Memory” (RECALL) – 555489-CITIZ-1-2014-1-IT-CITIZ-REMEM, is promoted by the Opera Nomadi Nazionale and is realised in the frame of the Europe for Citizens Programme – Strand 1 – European Remembrance.
Its objective is to promote a common, transnational reflection on: the “Porrajmos” (or “Samudaripen“), namely the extermination of the Roma and Sinti people during the World War II; the deportations suffered in Romania and Italy by Roma, Sinti and Travellers; the contribution, still not well known, that Roma and Sinti people gave the Resistance and to the Liberation from Nazi-Fascism in many countries, including Italy and Bulgaria.
Recall promotes the collection of memories of survivors and relatives of the Roma exterminated during the World War II, through:
- dissemination workshops at schools of partner countries and interactive workshops focused on storytelling and performances that will allow to appreciate the Roma/Sinti culture
- conferences and remembrance events
- an exhibition on material and immaterial Romanì culture
