On the occasion of August 2, Roma Holocaust Memorial Day 2020, young Roma and non-Roma people are sharing their messages about the importance of remembrance, challenging antigypsyism and youth activism.

Statement by Martin Alex Hegedűs, Hungary: “As a non-Roma young person I think that in a society where diversity is a basic value, it’s very important that the groups of people living side by side take solidarity for each other’s issues. I think the Holocaust is maybe our most important and most horrible common cause what needs to be remembered and needs to be highlighted together. We must do everything we can to ensure that it does not happen again.”

This video campaign is part of the Roma Youth Voices Project, coordinated by Phiren Amenca and funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme of the DG Justice, European Commission.
