Call for cooperation in establishing a “centralised point of information” of the Pharrajimos, the Holocaust of the Roma during the Second World War
2015 marks the 71st anniversary of the Holocaust of the Roma during the Second World War, “Pharrajimos”. Over 3,000 Roma were exterminated during the night of 2-3 August 1944 in “Zigeunerlager BIII” at Auschwitz – Birkenau. The Pharrajimos is by far the biggest tragedy in the history of the Roma. It has traumatised the Roma till this day. The Holocaust of the Roma has determined our attitude in defending universal human rights, our need for freedom, and our stance towards well-meant multicultural ideals in today’s Europe.
The official recognition, at a national and international level, of the Pharrajimos, the Holocaust of the Roma during the Second World War is of crucial importance in fighting and eliminating the anti-Gypsyism that unfortunately is happening throughout Europe until today.
