Do you receive TIME Magazine? If so, keep your eyes open in their most recent issue to find an article about Roma in Eastern Europe. Featured prominently (at least in the online version) is a picture of a recently-built wall here in Kosice. If you don’t have the hard-copy version, you can find the article online here:
As with all articles we link, we’re adding a couple of disclaimers:
- If you want to see how high emotions can get over these issues, scroll down and look through some of the comments that are left by others. USE DISCRETION – some of these comments are simply hateful.
- Like most articles written from a Western point of view, this article tends to oversimplify the tensions between the minority-Roma and the majority population. The issues are very deep and very old, so the “solutions” are very complex. No story has only one side!!
