Porrajmos: The Romani and the Holocaust with Ian Hancock - Holocaust Living History
The Romani genocide, refer to as the Porrajmos, or "the Devouring," was often ignored or minimized until Ian Hancock and others exposed this misfortune. A Romani-born British citizen, activist, and scholar, Hancock has done more than anyone to raise awareness about the Romani people during World War II. In his lecture, Hancock discusses psychological, sociological, religious, and philosophical origins of the Holocaust against Romani back to 15th-19th centuries and the scale of the genocide of European Romani during the World War II.
