The project team gathered for 3 days in an online webinar named: “75 years of Memory – What are the lessons learnt?” in which we discussed general information regarding Roma Holocaust, we changed ideas and knowledge on the topic.
Short project description:
This project aims to raise a strong awareness on Porrajmos concentrating on the events taken place in the Balkans, Hungary and Transnistria before,during,after WWII, in order to preserve the memory of the Roma and Sinti victims of Nazism. As our European values and integration are fundamentally built on our historical experience and memory, we need to shed light on the forgotten Roma genocide, the over 500.000 victims, and the continuation of social exclusion, Antigypsyism and hate speech as a consequence of the ignorance and lack of recognition of the Roma Genocide.
