Antigypsyism in the German Public Sphere. Strategies and Mechanisms of Media Communication

Documentation and Cultural Centre of German Sinti and Roma

With this study by Markus End, the Documentation and Cultural Centre of German Sinti and Roma presents for the first time and in detail the effect and principle of operation of antigypsyist resentments and prejudice in the media. Deliberately providing a multitude of examples of common and not extreme forms of prejudice, Markus End shows that the media coverage of Sinti and Roma can be defined within an antigypsyist interpretative framework, and that it confirms and reproduces the sometimes centuries-old stereotypes and prejudices.
