European Roma Holocaust Memorial Day (Pharrajimos)

The Roma nation commemorates this tragedy on 2nd August, the date on which over 3,000 Roma men, women and children were exterminated in the evening of 2nd August 1944 in gas chamber V of "Zigeunerlager BIII" at Auschwitz – Birkenau. The genocide on Roma during the Second World War is by far the greatest tragedy in Roma history.

On the occasion of the European Roma Holocaust Memorial Day (Pharrajimos) the Roma and Travellers Team organises a commemorative ceremony in memory of the Roma victims on Thursday, 2 August 2018 at 12.00 pm on the lawn in front of the Palais de l’Europe.
