In village of Trebisov, hundreds of Roma live in old dilapidated
housing complexes. Their days are
spent trying to earn enough money to feed and clothe their children.
On the first of May, 2004, the face of Europe changed considerably. Ten new
countries were added to the European Union and many brought with them a set
of social issues that suddenly became a continental problem. In tiny villages
across Slovakia, Romas live in filthy slums and absolute poverty. Isolated
and excluded from the rest of society, they are now EU citizens with out
social security, access to education, health care and they that lack even the
right to vote.
