The international Roma youth network ternYpe together with partner organisations, and with the support of the Council of Europe Youth Department, will organise an educational and commemoration event involving some 200 young Roma and non Roma. The main aim of the Dikh He Na Bister (Look and Don’t Forget) is to raise awareness among young Europeans, civil society and decision-makers about the Roma Genocide, as well as about the mechanisms of antigypsyism in a challenging context of rising racism, hate speech and extremism in Europe. The Council of Europe supports the activities of ternYpe and Roma youth in researching, discussing and discovering the meaning of the Roma Genocide as a way of understanding human rights, history and support for the work against discrimination.
Right to Remember handbook for education of young people on the Roma Genocide was developed under the Roma Youth Action Plan project to support all those interested and wishing to promote deeper awareness of the Roma Genocide and to combat discrimination.
