One of the activities that is part of the European project Mem-Rrom are the University Days 'Historical retrospective of the Rroma persecution', organized by the Maranatha Federation of Gypsy Associations with the collaboration and participation of the Universitat de València, more specifically the Faculty of Geography and History.
During two days, on November 23 and 24, the students who attended the conference learned the history of the Roma people, the persecutions and their migratory movements in Europe. They were very attentive and participative in the presentations, they were interested in the gypsy culture and they knew the reality of the gypsy people, a minority ethnic group, without racist stereotypes.
