We are on our way to the Roma Holocaust Remembrance Initiative in Krakow. Together, with over 1000 young Roma and non-Roma, we will remember the past, act in the present and change the future during the next four days.

The program includes a youth event with workshops and discussions, and an international expert conference with influential guest speakers such as Roma MEP Soraya Post.

On #2August, there will be a commemoration ceremony on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the liquidation of 2897 men, women and children, who were interned in the so-called ‘Gypsy camp’ in Auschwitz.

European Roma Rights Centre - Tue, 07/29/2014 - 5:14pm
Romanian authorities broke their promises to tackle discrimination against Roma in Hădăreni - promises they made before the European Court Of Human Rights (ECHR) 9 years ago. The Cluj Napoca Court of Appeal last Friday ordered the state to take the actions it committed to in 2005.

The Romani community in Hădăreni was targeted in one of the most brutal incidents of violence against Roma in the early 1990s. During the pogrom in 1993 three Romani men were killed and 18 Romani houses were destroyed by a mob.

ERRC and our partners Romani CRISS, with whom we brought this court challenge, welcome this judgment. We call on the Romanian authorities to live up to their promises made in 2005.

Did you know that #2August 2014 marks the 70th anniversary of the remembrance day of the #RomaGenocide?

We would like to dedicate this week to remember those who suffered and lost their lives during the Roma Holocaust, sometimes referred to as the ‘Porajmos’ (which means ‘Devouring’ in some dialects of the Romani language).

During the rest of the week, we will post about this dark era of Roma history and keep you updated about the Roma Genocide Remembrance Initiative, the biggest commemoration gathering of Roma and non-Roma, organised by ternYpe - International Roma Youth Network, that will be taking place from July 30 - August 4, 2014 in Krakow and Auschwitz.

You can join us! Flood your timeline with material about this often forgotten and neglected part of history to raise awareness and commemorate the loss of Roma lives during the Nazi-regime and help us move towards a world where there is no space for anti-Roma racism or discrimination of any kind.

Many Roma children in France have restricted access to education.

We conducted participatory field research in six informal Romani settlements and found that more than 50% of the surveyed were not attending school. In most cases (60%) they were refused to enrol in school by local mayors.

Our findings were presented today in Paris, by the ERRC staff and Romani women from the settlements, who assisted the research. We call on French authorities to take all necessary steps to provide access to education to all Roma children, as prescribed by French and international law.

The full report – that also includes data on discrimination in access to housing and employment - will be published soon.

Today, ERRC sent written comments to the United Nations Human Rights Committee for consideration at its upcoming 112th Session in October.

Our submission contains country-specific information on issues affecting Roma in Macedonia that raise questions under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).

Roma in Macedonia are regularly victims of police violence, many of them face discrimination by border officials when they try to leave their country and they are regularly discriminated against in many other fields of their daily lives.
