From the very beginning of its existence, the Roma have had strong ties with Nowa Huta. They do not just live there. They built it, but few people remember it today.

Apart from Poles, also Greeks, Macedonians, and Ukrainians co-created the community of this great socialist project. Nowa Huta became a place where different traditions came to intersect.

Why did the Roma decide to leave the Carpathian landscape and move to the city? What did they find? What happened to the places where their ancestors lived for generations?

We invited you to join our guests to reflect together on the effects of this great modernisation project, on the people associated with it, on the promise of a new beginning. The meeting with Dr. Jarosław Klaś and Monika Szewczyk was hosted by Katarzyna Kubisiowska on March 2 at 6 pm.
