The exhibition can be viewed through the windows of one of the units from tomorrow until a week on Monday.

The exhibition, The Nazi Regime: Persecution Of Gypsies, was on show at the centre in August because August 2 is the internationally recognised day of commemoration of the Roma genocide.

Newark Stop Hate Crime is sharing the exhibition with a wider audience to increase understanding of the history of persecution and misunderstanding of Gypsy Travellers.

Newark College has produced a poster to advertise Hate Crime Awareness Week.

There will be a stall on Saturday, Wednesday and a week on Saturday to display the poster, hand out leaflets and talk to people, with the aim of increasing the reporting of hate crime and raising awareness of the problems it causes.

Artists Bill and Nadia Ming will judge the entries of two poster competitions.

Schoolchildren can create A4 posters about race hate crime in any cultural group, including their own.

Adults can create A4 posters about hate crime towards disabilities, including their own.

The closing date for entries is 4pm on Wednesday.

Entries can be handed in to the covid-compliant stall on Saturday and Wednesday of next week, or the foyer of Newark College.

Prizes of art materials will be awarded from the stall on Saturday, October 17, or delivered to the relevant school. They can also be collected from the college foyer by arrangement.

There is a Facebook page, www.facebook.com/Newark-Stop-Hate-Crime where a number of live events will be screened. The dates and times will be advertised.

Videos will be on YouTube, including extracts from Travelling Forward Against Hate Crime: Know it, Report it, Stop it ­— produced in Newark over a decade ago.

There is a new website https://newarkstophatecrime.org.uk
