New book highlights the history of Swedish Roma

Although Roma have lived in Sweden for centuries, their history has thus far been poorly illustrated. In the book Vägskälens kulturarv – kulturarv vid vägskäl (“The crossroads’ cultural history – cultural history at the crossroads”), Roma take their place in the Swedish cultural landscape.

“This is important documentation in terms of raising the profile of the Roma and the places where they have lived in Sweden,” says the book’s editor, Ingrid Martins Holmberg from the Department of Conservation.
