The Roma Of Greece
The Roma Of Greece, settled or displaced, are part of the Roma living in almost all parts of the world. They first appeared around the 11th century in areas of the Byzantine Empire and somewhere between the 14th and 15thcentury in today’s Greek area. Since then they have lived in various parts of Greece, from Crete to Thrace, and according to their particular perceptions and social structure have been organised in temporary or permanent settlements. They depend their economic activities on market needs presented to the surrounding society.
After the First World War, and particularly after the Asia Minor Disaster, a second large Roma migratory stream entered Greece from the Constantinople and Izmir area (Ioannidou 1990:436). Some Roma groups who have apparently moved from Romania and Albania, as early of the 20th century to just as recently, use many elements of the Romanian and Albanian language. (περισσότερα…)
