On this #InternationalRomaDay, we must take a stand against racism towards the Roma – an acceptable form of racism in the UK and Europe today. We also need much better awareness of the Romani Holocaust at the hands of the Nazis and the continued marginalisation of the Roma people to this day.
The Roma people are the largest minority group in Europe. They are originally from India. They moved to Europe 1000 years ago. According to some sources, up to half a million Roma people were murdered during the Second World War.
