Serbian Roma Youth Association

On the occasion of 2. August – European Holocaust Memorial Day for Sinti and Roma, Serbian Roma Youth Association issued the statement urging Serbian authorities to officially declare this date as Remembrance Day for Roma victims of genocide during World War II. We also called on the relevant ministries to include the history of Roma and their suffering in the school curriculum. This statement had significant media coverage because it was published in several national newspapers. The links below: Due to the current situation with the corona virus, we organized two separate but simultaneous commemorations of Roma victims of genocide, in Belgrade at the memorial plaque in the former Topovske šupe camp and in the village of Doljevac near Nis near the monument to the victims of World War II. During commemoration event in Belgrade we organize short history presentation of Topovske šupe camp as well as current situation and our activities to save this place from the demolition that was announced.
