Roma Holocaust Memorial Day

Roma Holocaust Memorial Day

Roma Holocaust Memorial Day, marked in our calendars every 2nd of August, memorialises the Holocaust’s lesser-known victims: the Romani people. During World War II, the Nazis systematically persecuted and murdered hundreds of thousands of Romani individuals. This date is pertinent since on August 2nd 1944, the last 2,897 Romani prisoners at Auschwitz-Birkenau were killed in gas chambers.


Recognising this important date ensures that the suffering of the Romani people during the Holocaust is not forgotten and serves as a stark reminder of the consequences of discrimination and hatred. This commemoration encourages us to stand against all forms of prejudice and racism, fostering a more compassionate world. Honouring the Roma Holocaust, helps affirm our global commitment to preserving the memory of the victims, highlighting the importance of a society that values the rights and dignity of everyone, regardless of their ethnicity or background.
