Thursday 25th January 7.30 p.m. North Benwell Youth Project, Ellesmere Road, Benwell, Newcastle. A Living Tradition are putting on another showing of the very powerful and moving film, A People Uncounted, about the plight of the Roma during the Holocaust and the continued discrimination they face in Europe today. This film is suitable for over-16s only.
Friday 26th January 9.30 - 3.00, Armstrong Building, Newcastle University. A Living Tradition presents a a conference on the '10 Steps to Genocide; Reflecting on the Porajmos and the Genocide at Srebrenica'. This innovative conference will involve members of the local Roma and Bosnian communities telling how genocide affected their people and how it developed gradually using the commonly accepted 10 Steps to genocide pattern. We will then use these experiences to reflect on signs of the 10 steps in our own society on Tyneside and in the wider country.
This will be a very useful event for anybody wanting to learn more about the Roma Holocaust or Porajmos and the Genocide at Srebrenica in 1995 and also for anybody wishing to work for better community relations on Tyneside today. Please see the link below to sign up:
