Roma and Sinti have been at home in Germany and Baden-Württemberg for 600 years. About 12,000 members of the minority live in Baden-Württemberg. The Roma and Sinti are one of a total of four recognized national minorities (recognition was granted by the Federal Republic of Germany in 1997). In addition to German, Romani is usually spoken in a minority language, which is divided into different dialects. Roma and Sinti have been repeatedly discriminated against and displaced throughout history. During the National Socialist regime, Roma and Sinti were persecuted in areas occupied by Germany with the aim of planned and final extermination. About 500,000 Roma and Sinti became victims of this genocide. Int. chr. The educational and social initiative for Sinti & Roma eV was established in 2004. The non-profit association is networked and committed at regional and supra-regional level.
