Roma part of Stara Lubovna located in northeastern Slovakia

Religious relics Inside the house of Roma resident Julius Korckovsky at the settlement "Podsadek" - with about 1087 (2013) residents - in Stara Lubovna located about 100 km from Kosice in northeast Slovakia. Julius Korckovsky - a long time resident at the Roma settlement “Podsadek” - explains : “As a child I was growing up in-between white people in Czech Republic and not in the Roma community. When I was young the relation in-between Roma and the majority population was better. They called us for work and gave us food in return such as eggs, milk, butter etc. and the Roma were living better then now. To improve our living we need employment and now I am not talking just about the Roma but also about the majority population here. The young generation does not appreciate their bread anymore if they get it for free. If they would be employed and would buy the bread with their own money they would appreciate that bread much more.”
