Education on the Roma Genocide in the Second World War in the Republic of Croatia

Danijel Vojak


The Roma population has been living in Croatian territories for
more than six centuries and during that period was mostly persecuted by state and local authorities who sought to assimilate
them. Such antigypsyism political practice was not unique only
for the Croatian territory but was practiced in most other
European countries. After World War II there was no commemoration and recognition of Roma victims in most European
countries, including socialist Croatia (Yugoslavia). Such marginalization of the culture of remembrance of Roma war victims
was reflected in the lack of education on this subject in the Croatian education system, where it is mostly mentioned in only a
few words. The paper focuses on the analysis of how the issue of
Roma suffering in the Independent State of Croatia (NDH) and
Europe is (un)integrated into the Croatian education system.
