Workshops and Guided Tours

A visit to the Documentation and Cultural Center offers the opportunity to encounter the history and the present of the Sinti and Roma and allows for an examination of the persecution of this minority during the Nazi era. We would like to engage in conversation with our visitors and thus have devised educational opportunities which encourage a critical historical awareness, an examination of past and present racism, as well as individual contemplation of identity, responsibility and scope of action.


In addition to the specialized public library, the Documentation and Cultural Center also has a collection of historical objects and documents on the topics of the history and culture of the Sinti and Roma, National Socialism and the Holocaust, Antigypsyism and civil rights work.
