The Dalits of Europe

The Gypsies – one of Europe’s most segregated and neglected ethnic groups – are the sole residents of these makeshift enclaves, perched alongside fancy hotels or first-class residential complexes in the Serbian capital. The Belgraders mostly turn their heads from these settlements, regarding them as “tumours” in the body of their city.

What’s worse, the enclaves are targeted by skinheads and other extremists who often come in the middle of the night to attack the slums’ beleaguered residents.
