A Database of “Gypsy” Victims of National Socialist Persecution
Collective Biographic Data from the Territory of the Czech Republic
In 1999, Miroslav Kárný, founder of the Institut Terezínske iniciativy (Terezín Initiative Institute, ITI), offered the support of the Terezín Initiative Institute for a dignified remembrance of victims of the genocide of Roma and Sinti during the Second World War. Since nobody took up this offer, ITI themselves decided to undertake this remembrance. The project Databáze romských obětí holocaustu (Database of the Roma Victims of the Holocaust, DROH), which began four years ago, resulted in May 2020 in the publication of the database online at holocaust.cz. This project report highlights a few of the developments throughout the past four years and the possibilities this new database opens up for further research on the topic.
