On Sunday, January 27, we marked International Holocaust Remembrance Day with a screening of the French film Korkoro, a rare cinematic tribute to the Romani victims of the Nazis. The film was well-attended and received, and afterward we received many questions.

In order to help people learn more, our librarian, Ryan, put together this great reading list!
