Destroyed by the Second World War, and still raw from both Nazi occupation and its subsequent 45 years of Soviet rule, Warsaw is a city whose history is writ large upon its public spaces.

A designer ghetto rises in Europe

THEY WILL build a wall along Maticni Street, a wall to separate Gizela and Jozef Lacko from their non-Roma neighbours.

Ghetto priest rallies Jamaican poor

THEY CALL him the Ghetto Priest, something of a male version of Mother Teresa, most often seen tramping Kingston's slums in white robe, blue sash and sandals. The fact that he has written a number-one reggae single and dozens of musicals, and writes a newspaper column, gives him considerably more street cred than your average clergyman.

`Ghetto' statue returns hero to the Jews

AFTER 50 years, Matyas Vince can finally honour the memory of the man who saved his parents' life.

The editor who escaped from the lifestyle ghetto

Karen Jurgensen has just been appointed the first woman editor of `USA Today', the largest circulation newspaper in America.

Jews? I liked them all my life, said the old man in the dock for Nazi killings

THE OLD man stood up instantly when his name was called yesterday. As he moved slowly across the floor of the Old Bailey's number 12 courtroom, there was a quiet determination, almost a kind of defiance, about him. His head was high and his eyes raked from side to side, more than willing to meet others'. There were perhaps 100 people in the court, but such was the power of the moment that everybody seemed to stop breathing for several minutes.

Jews were `mown down', trial told

A CHILDHOOD friend of the defendant in Britain's first war crimes trial yesterday recalled how he watched Anthony Sawoniuk "mow down" 15 Jewish women with a machine gun in a remote forest clearing.

A CHILDHOOD friend of Anthony Sawoniuk, the defendant in Britain's first war crimes trial, told yesterday how Mr Sawoniuk behaved like a "cruel lord and master" towards Jews in the Second World War.

Letter: Priced out of town

Sir: If the Government is serious about encouraging "Sierra Man" to adapt to urban living (report, 14 January), it would do well to look at the most obvious reason for many not living in an urban setting. It is not an aspiration to live near the country but rather the inability to afford to live in the city.

Le Pen accuses NF rivals of `racism'

THE TIME BOMB of personal hatreds, rivalries and suspicions at the heart of the ultra-right National Front finally threatens to explode this week, with far-reaching consequences for French politics.

Letter: Gypsies in the Ghetto

Sir: I have studied the social and political situations of the Roma minority in the Czech Republic during the past two years. I am pleased to note that the British media is devoting more attention to Europe's most silent victims of racism ("Czech cities plan `apartheid' wall around gypsy ghettoes", 27 May) . The situation is even more difficult than you portrayed. I have often been shocked by the violent reactions that otherwise respectable Czech citizens have towards their Roma neighbours.

Czech cities wall off gypsy ghetto

THE wall, symbol of a divided Eastern Europe, is back. Not in east Berlin, but in two cities in the Czech Republic, where local officials are planning to construct barriers to segregate gypsies, or Roma, as they

Clinton brings hope to Cape Town ghetto

ONLY Hillary Clinton was expected at the Victoria Mxenge Housing Project in Philippi, one of Cape Town's saddest, sprawling shack settlements yesterday.
