The Nazi Genocide of Roma (Gypsies) | May 1, 7:30pm| Memorial Union Multipuporse room 13

Pillar: Inclusive
 
The Holocaust was not the only genocidal campaign engineered by the Nazis and their allies outside Germany. There was also the “Porrajmos” (“the devouring”), an assault on the Romani peoples of Europe (often called “Gypsies”) that resulted in the death of more than half their number. Carol Silverman, a professor at the University of Oregon, is a scholar of Romani society and culture. Her talk at OSU focused on the Porrajmos, but she also discussed the general history of persecution of, and violence toward, the Roma, including present-day discrimination in Europe.
