The Sinti and Roma in Italy and Around the World

In 2012, USC Shoah Foundation – The Institute for Visual History and Education and the Centro di ricerca sulle relazioni interculturali dell’Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (Center for Research on Intercultural Relations at the Sacred Heart Catholic University) in Milan, Italy, developed Giving Memory a Future: The Holocaust and the Rights of Roma in Contemporary Europe, a multimedia educational resource with information about Sinti and Roma in Europe, during the period of the Romani holocaust (1939 – 1945).  The main goal of the project is to provide information and resources to political decision makers and educational policy makers, in order to facilitate better understanding of the Sinti and Roma culture and history, develop new strategies of addressing discrimination against Sinti and Roma, and promote peaceful coexistence in Europe.
