The IAF Munich (Association of Binational Families and Partnerships) started a project in 2005 to highlight racism in school books and teaching material. AMIGRA supported the working group to address and raise awareness among the relevant agencies. The Federal Anti-discrimination Agency addressed the relevant publishers with the request to change the concerned parts in the books [1, pp. 39/40].
The Hesse State association of Sinti and Roma compiled a set of educational materials on Sinti and Roma (‘Media Suitcase’) in 2009. These materials have been distributed among schools in Darmstadt and should raise awareness amongst the pupils about the situation of Sinti and Roma and redress anti-Roma prejudices. This education initiative was funded within the federal programme “Vielfalt tut gut.” [2, p. 21].
