My daughter is working on a report on the Romani. She is trying to find out as much as she can. Websites, books or other sources for information would be much appreciated. She isn't writing a report in the traditional sense. They have freedom in how they present the information to the class. She is leaning toward maybe doing a documentary type film about 15 minutes in length. She has found a few websites and is working on getting up to the library to see if they have any information on them as well.

You probably want to ping Dmitri. Nobody (that I know of) knows more about Romani than that man. If you can't get him, try his wife, Veldrina.

I second the Dimtri ping, he knows more than anyone I know

Or Janos. He knows a lot.

Sadly, there's probably a lot of information out there right now because of what's happening in France. Tell her to look up international news on CNN.com and the like.

That really sounds fascinating.
Here's her opportunity to shine by dispelling a lot of those myths and stereotypes.

Great topic!
