“Roma Memory” Exhibit Premiere at the European Commission

Beginning January 27, 2016 International Holocaust Remembrance Day, our exhibit “Roma Memory” will premiere for the first time at the European Commission in Brussels. After our years of research on the Roma genocide in partnership with Yahad – In Unum, we are very excited to bring to light the stories of victims and survivors of the Roma genocide through this exhibition.

Tribute by President François Hollande

On April 26, 2015 during his commemoration at the former concentration camp of Natzweiler-Struthof, President François Hollande paid tribute to Yahad-In Unum’s research work, in partnership with Roma Dignity, to collect survivors’ testimonies on the Roma genocide.


Recognition by the European Parliament

Laying the groundwork for a path to dignity, on April 16, 2015, the European Parliament officially recognized the Roma Holocaust through the establishment of a unique day dedicated to Roma Holocaust commemoration.

This commemoration stands not only as a recognition of the hundreds of thousands of Roma who were killed during World War II, but also as a breakthrough in the effort to fight against Roma discrimination in Europe today.

Below, watch an interview with Roma Dignity President Costel Nastasie and European Deputy Soraya Post.
