Open your mind - go beyond stereotypes!

Teaching the facts about Roma people
1'40" 8 April 2019 Council of Europe Strasbourg

There are nearly 10 million Roma living in the 47 member states of the Council of Europe. They suffer from widespread sterotyping and prejudice. In order to open our minds to their true situation we need to start teaching the reality in schools. This video, aimed mainly at children, deals with some common misconceptions concerning the Roma, through the scenario of a teacher addressing a class of pupils with a series of questions. For example, he asks them what kind of jobs they think Roma do, and which part of the world they came to Europe from.
