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.
