Ostrovany

Portrait of the Kaleja family in their home, in the back father Lubomir (42) years old. 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.
