Part of 3GNY’s New Series: More Than Six Million
Wednesday, November 17, 2021 at 8:00 pm on Zoom

We’re excited to introduce our new webinar series, More Than 6 Million: A series exploring Nazi persecution beyond the Jews. Over the next several months, we’ll feature programming that includes facts, stories, and experiences about the many other targets of Nazi persecution and genocide.

The inaugural event of our new series explores the history of the Romani people in Central and Eastern Europe from their enslavement in the 14th century, genocide during WWII, through pogroms, forced sterilization, and exclusion in the 21st century.

This event is presented with support from the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage.
