“Dikh he na Bister” Youth Event around Roma Holocaust Memorial Day

Around the Roma Holocaust Memorial Day on 2 August 2018, there will be about 250 young Roma and non-Roma from across Europe in Krakow and Auschwitz-Birkenau in the unique youth event “Dikh he na bister” (Look and don’t forget). The Roma Genocide Remembrance Initiative aims at raising awareness among young Europeans, civil society and decision-makers about the Roma Genocide, as well as about the mechanisms of antigypsyism in a challenging context of rising racism, hate speech and extremism in Europe.

April 15, 2015 marked a historical moment. The European Parliament voted with an overwhelming majority to finally adopt a resolution which recognizes “the historical fact of the genocide of Roma that took place during World War II”. ternYpe aims to empower young Roma to have a voice to become key agents of change, and to foster solidarity among young people. ternYpe International Roma Youth Network and its partners have been committed to advocate for this recognition for many years.

Program: Official commemoration in Birkenau, Educational seminar, Meetings with Holocaust survivors, Visit to Auschwitz.
