Roma - a forgotten Holocaust
Half a million Roma died during the Second World War, victims of Nazi death squads and extermination camps. 20,000 died in Auschwitz, nearly 3,000 of them on a single day, August 2nd 1944, which is now recognised officially as Roma Holocaust Day, and marked every year by the Council of Europe and other international organisations and governments.
