Ostrovany

Portrait of 13 years old Darinka with her grandmother Iveta (54) in their home at the Roma settlement in Ostrovany. Darinka said that her dream for the future is to become a teacher and to educate Roma. In 2010, the town of Ostrovany received international media attention when the town council built a wall deviding private gardens/property and the neighbouring Roma settlement. Several media outlets compared the look of Ostrovany’s imposing 150-metre long wall with the Berlin Wall. Mayor Mr. Rehak sees the building as a "fence" and not a wall.
