Remember the #RomaGenocide!

“The genocide of the Sinti and Roma was carried out from the same motive of racial mania, with the same premeditation, with the same wish for the systematic and total extermination as the genocide of the Jews. Complete families from the very young to the very old were systematically murdered within the entire sphere of influence of the National Socialists.”
Roman Herzog, Federal President of Germany, 16 March 1997.

Few people know that the Roma were one of the groups targeted for complete elimination by the Nazis. By the end of the War, the size of the Roma population was about 20% - 30% of what it had been at the start. Perhaps 80% had been killed, amounting to at least half a million people.

Who remembers their Genocide today?
Who remembers that on the night of 2 August 1944, almost 3,000 Roma living in the ‘gypsy camp’ at Auschwitz-Birkenau were herded into the gas chambers and brutally murdered?


Remember the #RomaGenocide.
Remember #2August.
Stop #RomaDiscrimination.
