Roma, Jews, and the Holocaust

6 March at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Jews and Roma died side by side in the Holocaust, yet the world did not recognize their destruction equally. In the years and decades following the war, the Jewish experience of genocide increasingly occupied the attention of legal experts, scholars, educators, and politicians, while the genocide of Europe’s Roma went largely ignored. How do we rewrite Holocaust history in light of our understanding that Nazi genocidal practices against Jews and Roma were deeply interconnected? And how should we view Romani and Jews’ survivors’ parallel but unequal struggles for historical justice in the postwar period?
