Switzerland. Geneva. Women dormitory in the fallout shelter Richemont. Clothes such as panties and casual clothes from Romani women are hanged and dry on a rope. A sign written in french says: No belongings should be left unattented in the room. The bunker was constructed as civil defense measures during the Cold War and is a unit of the Civil Protection. Switzerland is unique in having enough nuclear fallout shelters to accommodate its entire population. Romani are widely known by the exonym Gypsies (or Gipsies) and also as Romany, Romanies, Romanis, Roma or Roms. 7.02.2014 © 2014 Didier Ruef
