The project conducted research on Porajmos history, including the conditions that contributed to its organization and implementation. It resulted in a mobile exhibition (travelling to Poland, Moldova and Germany) and a permanent exhibition in the Museum "Jewish Memory and Holocaust in Ukraine". The research, carried out by consulting archives, experts, and witnesses, focused particularly on the implementation of the Porajmos by Nazis in Ukraine, Moldova, Poland and Germany.
