A Roma Journey: Europeana Supports New Web Exhibition from The European Library
THE HAGUE.- Europeana invites the public to uncover the Roma’s rich cultural heritage through a ground breaking multilingual online exhibition.

The display is organised by The European Library – one of Europeana’s first content providers. The European Library is channelling digitised content from Europe ’s national and research libraries into Europeana.

Visitors to A Roma Journey can view a unique collection of full-text books, rare manuscripts, photographs, paintings, sound recordings and videos from the world of the Roma.

Rarities on offer include the first ever dictionary written in Romani-Serbian-German in a concentration camp, traditional songs and tales, postcards and letters exploring the experiences of one Roma family in Scandinavia.

In addition to highlighting Roma culture, A Roma Journey provides a glimpse of the type of virtual exhibitions that will be available on Europeana in the future. Europeana is working with The European Library to develop virtual exhibitions, including some with curatorial interpretation, for the Europeana.eu portal.

Currently, visitors to Europeana.eu can discover more about Roma heritage by searching for items. Objects to be found include a video of traditional music and a Van Gogh painting of a Roma camp.
