Fortunoff Research Fellow (10/2023 – 09/2025)


The Representation of the Forgotten-Silenced: Understanding the Social Process of Cultural Trauma of the European Romani Communities


Maria BogdanAs a VWI Fortunoff Fellow, Maria Bogdan researches testimonies in the Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies related to the Sinti and Roma experience. As part of this work, she - together with the archive's partner, the Milana Šimečku Foundation (MSF) in Bratislava - promotes the use of Slovak-language testimonies of Sinti and Roma survivors. More than a dozen of the testimonies are currently closed to the public due to issues related to privacy and legal regulations. She is working with the MSF to open up the collection and enable its use in teaching and research. At the same time, she is working on her current research project on social processes of cultural traumatisation in European Roma communities.
