Bulgaria: Deutsche Welle Releases Documentary About Marriage in Roma Minority of Bulgaria pixabay.com

The German publication Deutsche Welle has produced a documentary in Bulgaria about one of the older traditions of the Roma minority with regards to marriage.

The documentary follows a Kalaidzhi family as they attempt to find a husband for their daughter, and it explores the differences between the young Roma and the older generations.

In Bulgaria the Roma majority faces a number of social issues stemming from a combination of complex history, as well as cultural issues and discrimination. The result is that they have for a long time experienced social isolation, and as a result have maintained some older traditions which seem strange to outsiders.

While the subject may be somewhat controversial, Deutsche Welle approaches it in a sensible and human manner.
