Gypsy Kids Taken From Home

Hungary has more Roma gypsy kids in institutional care than any other EU country and is facing a potential crisis. Stacey Dooley meets some of the parents, kids and social workers on the frontline of Hungary's child protection system, as she investigates accusations by Roma families of widespread institutional racism in the Hungarian care system.

Against a backdrop of growing support for nationalist and far right politicians among Hungarians, Stacey questions if there is a genuine need for Roma children to be protected - or if prejudice is driving a growing trend to take Roma kids from their families.
