On occasion of the International Day of Commemoration of the Victims of the Holocaust (January 27th) the NGO Roma Active Albania (RAA), based in Tirana, presents Shiko dhe Mos Harro, an exhibition on the remembrance of the Roma Genocide convicted by the Nazis during the World War II.
In August 2013 young Roma and Non-Roma from all over Europe came together to commemorate the day of the liquidation of the “Zigeunerlager” in Auschwitz in 1944. During four days they were gathering in workshops and discussion rounds to learn about this widely unknown part of the Holocaust and to work on an active culture of remembrance to fight antigypsyism, racism, hate speech and extremism in Europe.
RAA wants to share this experience and promote the recognition of the Roma Genocide in a wider public in Albania. After the opening of the exhibition there will be a screening of the documentary movie “A People Uncounted” to give more insight to the topic of Roma Genocide in general.
