Nikdy jsem nebyl podceňovanej
Title in English: I was never underestimated. From Slovak settlements into Czech cities for work. After-war memories
A collection of narratives of men and women who left Slovakian Roma settlements when they were children or youngsters, in order to settle down in Brno and Ostrava region, where they found work and new life. Their descendants experience completely different working and social reality. The witnesses´ narratives (maintaining certain particularities, e. g. the Roma ethnolect of Czech language) describe this transition through the perspective of everyday life and point at the socialist equalization of lifestyles and its consequences for today´s life. The narratives originated within the project “Memory of Roma workmen”. The book contains the analytic commentary explaining the work on memory collection and editing. The book is designated to the professional as well as wider audience.
