Exhibition on the Roma genocide

Newark's Hate Crime Awareness Week 2020 will start with Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping opening an exhibition in the Buttermarket of the Roma during the Holocaust on Saturday 10th October.

It features the Robert Dawson Collection of Photographs provided by the National Holocaust Centre from their exhibition this summer, The Nazi Regime: Persecution of Gypsies, to mark the internationally recognized day of commemoration of the Roma Genocide on 2nd August.

Newark Stop Hate Crime wants to share this exhibition with a wider audience to increase understanding of the long history of persecution and misunderstanding of Gypsy Travellers.

The free exhibition can be viewed through the windows of one of the units in the Buttermarket from Friday 9th October to Monday 19th October inclusive.
