The Suffering Of The Roma In Serbia During The Holocaust

Forum for Applied History, Belgrade

  • Description

„Concerning genocide against the Roma in Serbia, there are only fragmentary traces which most frequently appear and are repeated in scientific works devoted to other, kindred topics, such as and above all the Holocaust. Although this issue has been addressed by historiography in Serbia rather seldom and superficially,13 and despite the fact that certain authors attempted to include suffering of the Jews in the category of significant topics worthy of permanent attention, it can be noticed that since the very outset of their prominence in the public sphere, the Roma have been relegated to a place which has, to a certain extent, always been secondary in relation to the suffering of the Jews.”
