International Remembrance Day for Roma Victims of the Porrajmos (Holocaust) is on August 2nd.
On this day in 1944, thousands of Roma were gassed in Auschwitz-Birkenau. Jewish survivors said the sky was lit up all night by the crematory burning, and "the women were fighting for the life of their children". On August 3rd, Auschwitz–Birkenau was "Zigeunerfrei" (Free of Gypsies).
Romani groups have begun an international action day: ‘Together against Antigypsyism’.
PLEASE REMEMBER THEM.
