The Plight of the Roma

NPR's Sylvia Poggioli reports that the treatment of the Roma -- widely known as Gypsies -- is an important civil rights issue in Europe. This has become especially true since the collapse of Communism, which afforded the Roma more civil protections and economic opportunities. Now, they face ghettoization and discrimination throughout much of central Europe.
