This exhibition is meticulous and deeply moving. The curators have very successfully presented the Sinti people as individuals, families and communities, effectively overcoming the problem of the dominance of the persecutors' perspective ('hapless victims') which is inherent in the use of the Nazi documentation. We...More

This is a small, private museum (no fee to see it) started by a family who had interest in the Nazi persecution of the Sinti Roma gypsies. It is a mini-story of the Holocaust, and very well done. Hidden on side street below the castle....More
