Broken Silence is a gripping documentary whose protagonist, radio-reporter Orhan Galjus, tries to understand what happened to the Sinti and Roma during the Second World War. He fears that history repeats itself in contemporary Europe. Because all around Sinti and Roma are discriminated, excluded from mainstream society. How do the 12 million European Sinti and Roma respond to that? What do they know about their own history? Why don’t they speak and teach about it? Why the silence? To get answers Orhan Galjus travels with a friend to Germany and Poland to speak with survivors, eyewitnesses and others. He discovers the essential differences between his people and ‘Gadje’ (the ‘others’) and calls for a positive, non-violent change.
