Commemoration of the Roma and Sinti genocide:

On the occasion of the forthcoming commemoration of the Genocide of the Roma on 2 August, the director of the OSCE's Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights, Michael Georg Link, called for greater efforts to educate youth about the Roma genocide.

A seminar on “Educating about the Roma and Sinti genocide - Learning from the past to challenge present discrimination and promote equality”, in Stockholm, 23rd April 2015, was hosted jointly by the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR). Representatives from ODIHR’s Contact Point for Roma and Sinti Issues presented data gathered for a comprehensive report on the recognition and commemoration within the OSCE area of the Roma and Sinti genocide, to be published later this year and which will also highlight gaps in teaching and commemoration.
