The regional history of Roma living in the village of Brekov is the subject of the audio recordings, which DICRK obtained free of charge from researcher Elena Cinová. In 2020, her research project entitled The Brekov Roma in the Flow of Time was supported by the Fund for the Support of the Culture of National Minorities. Guided interviews are in the Slovak language and introduce life, culture and social changes in the region.
