Malgorzata Kolaczek

Scholars have only recently began investigating the truth about the tragic history of Roma people under the Nazi regime during World War II. In addition to analyzing the road to the commemoration of the Romani Holocaust, this lecture will also address the role of Roma themselves in the process. Furthermore, it will present and contrast mechanisms that led to the extermination of the Roma more than 70 years ago and those that are evident in discriminatory practices throughout Europe today.

Małgorzata Kołaczek is an assistant professor at the Institute of Intercultural Studies at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow.
