Berlin begins memorial to Roma killed in WWII


Today, the BBC reported that work has begun in the German capital, Berlin, on a memorial to the hundreds of thousands of Roma killed by the Nazis in World War II. It will feature a square well brimming with water and bearing an inscription of a poem about the Holocaust. A leader of Germany's Romani community, Romani Rose, praised the government for "recognising its historical responsibility" to those persecuted. The memorial in Tiergarten park, to the south of Berlin's parliament building, is scheduled to be completed in 2009. Berlin already contains a memorial to the millions of Jews who were killed in the Holocaust and another to the thousands of homosexuals persecuted by the Nazis during the war.
