Miranda - the Roma Holocaust
Funded by Europe for Citizens Programme of European Union
The exhibition "Miranda – the Roma Holocaust" was created in Finland in 2011 by a world-leading Roma author, Cultural Counsellor Veijo Baltzar in collaboration with 11 international archives, Anne Frank Foundation (NL), University of Helsinki (FI) and Museum of Romani Culture (CZ).
Miranda represents unique and innovative cultural and pedagogical product. Instead of focusing on atrocities or victim hood of the Roma, the exhibition speaks through arts and brings forth the values, soul and culture of the Roma people in past and present.
The project has received significant attention, being the first ever international Holocaust exhibition created by Roma themselves. The patron of the project is Finland’s former Prime Minister Mr. Paavo Lipponen.
36 million European citizens reached!
