August 2nd - Commemoration Day of the Roma Genocide

Press Release: August 2nd - ternYpe International Roma Youth Network

On the Day of Commemoration of the Roma Genocide on August 2, ternYpe International Roma Youth Network calls for a European wide political recognition of the persecution and genocide of Roma and Sinti in Europe by the Nazi regime, and for a greater awareness in our societies of the danger of antigypsyism, hate speech and stigmatization, which continuously cause social exclusion and marginalization of Roma in most European countries.

On the 2nd of August 1944, 2897 elderly people, women and children, the remaining Sinti and Roma of the so-called "gypsy camp" (“Zigeunerlager”) at Auschwitz-Birkenau, were murdered in the gas chambers. Knowledge and official recognition of the extermination of Roma during the Second World War is still very limited - especially among young Europeans including the Roma. Unlike the genocide of Jews, the wartime fate of Roma people is still  a blank page in historiography, the Roma Genocide during the Nazi regime; tens of thousands of Roma murdered in the occupied Eastern territories and thousands of them killed in extermination camps has still not entered the canon of modern history curricula. The ignorance of the majority of society concerning Roma history contributes complexly  to the prejudice Roma people suffer from, and it also represents an obstacle to their inclusion within the European Union.

European Youth Forum: Roma inclusion discussed and evaluated in the European Youth Centre

Brussels/European Youth Forum: Suffering from the stigmatisation of most communities in Europe, Roma young people face additional difficulties to play a full part in all aspects of society. During the transition to adulthood, many young Roma have to deal with even more poverty and lack of opportunities than young Europeans. In this context, a meeting was organised by the Council of Europe on 9th and 10th December 2011 in the European Youth Centre of Strasbourg to discuss Roma inclusion.

This two-days meeting constituted the follow-up of the Roma Youth Conference, which had taken place from 26th to 30th September and brought together Roma youth leaders and representatives of Roma non-governmental organisations active in combating discrimination affecting Roma across Europe. This time, the discussions focused on the evolution of Roma inclusion and on the preparation of a Roma Youth Action Plan for 2012-2013. Guidelines on possible ways to ameliorate Roma's inclusion were developed in response to the challenges and aspirations experienced by young Roma today. The Action Plan will, for example, respond to the limited access to political participation and to the limited or no participation in mainstream youth events and initiatives by Roma youth.
