To recall: “On the night between August 2 and 3, 1944, about 3,000 Roma men, women and children were killed in the gas chambers, the Family Camp for Gypsies in Auschwitz.”
Those victims are a symbolic part of almost 500,000 murdered Roma in those never-forgotten times of fascism. In commemoration of the innocent victims, the Roma people celebrate, together with the European Parliament and certain international organizations, the Day of Remembrance of the Roma Victims of the Holocaust on august 2.
The resolution of the European Parliament, which was adopted on April 15, 2015, officially declares the Day of Remembrance of the Roma Victims of the Holocaust.
From the end of World War II until the mid-1980s, there was hardly any discussion about the genocide of the Roma in Europe. In the last 15 years, young Romani men and women throughout Europe have been increasingly talking about this event as a reminder of the suffering of the innocent. In these challenging times, when solidarity and respect should be the foundation of any society, let this event be a reminder of what the human mind can do.
Watch and don’t forget!Dikh ha na bistar!
