Despair & hate
For months, the former Hotel Sport has been under a constant state of siege: Roma in the Czech town of Varnsdorf have barricaded themselves in the building while the ultra-right march outside. The besieged residents also fear hate-tourists from abroad – German neo-Nazis. The children living in the building act out what is transpiring outside their door: “demonstrator and police”. “Gypsies to the gas chamber!” they shout – they’ve heard it far too often. Their parents are desperate.
