Roma Rights, Summer 1997: Romani Holocaust

15th, July, 1997

The memory of the Romani Holocaust – i.e. the man-made end of the world for hundreds of thousands of European Gypsies - is being brought back to life in the Roma rights movement. The Romani Holocaust is the central theme of this issue. We present the official complaint filed by a group of Czech Romani and non-Romani citizens and demanding prosecution of a person who they believe shared the responsibility for the Romani genocide in 1942-1943. We also publish testimony by Roma people whose memories, however intimate, should inhabit a public space.
