The project gives special attention to the theme of Romani Resistance during World War II, as well as to educational work through oral history and testimonies of survivors. It strives to enable young Roma activist and scholars to collect and/or analyse testimonies in order to produce knowledge about acts of resistance performed by Roma during the Holocaust and in its aftermath.
