Ostrovany

The son of the Kaleja family in his home. 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.
