Phiren Amenca International Network holds a twenty-four-hour commemoration in Budapest on Roma Holocaust Memorial Day

Hirdetmény

This year, Budapest-based Phiren Amenca International Network commemorates those persons of Roma origin who were killed in the massacre, on occasion of August 2, that is commemorated on the International Day of Remembrance for the Roma Victims of the Holocaust. Our public memorial event is based on cooperation between a number of civil society organisations and will take place on August 1, 2020 from 5 pm to 2 August at 5 pm on the Nehru bank in Budapest, in front of the Roma Holocaust Memorial.

Public figures, artists, Roma and non-Roma youth and activists, NGOs and representatives of religious communities and minorities living in Hungary will read the names of more than twelve thousand Roma victims one by one, without interruption. To close our commemoration, civilians, NGOs, official and embassy representatives will place flowers and wreaths in front of the monument on August 2 from 5 p.m.

During the 24-hour commemoration, hundreds of citizens will take an active, participatory role. Phiren Amenca’s belief is that reading the names of the victims is a symbolic yet very significant way of commemorating their lives. Holocaust victims have no graves or headstones, but mentioning their names provides an opportunity to remember them individually. We often use simple statistics about our fellow human beings destroyed in genocides, but large numbers (6 million, 500 thousand, 11 million, 23 thousand ...) are difficult for most people to interpret and comprehend. However, we believe that by speaking their names, we can get closer to an emotional understanding of Nazi terror: in our minds we connect faces and destinies to names and thus inevitably bring to the surface human, deep feelings that affect us in connection with these gruesome events.

Regardless of race, gender, and nationality, we must remember the Roma victims of the Holocaust for posterity. We must remember that human beings, individuals, fathers, mothers, children, siblings were murdered because of their origins, and we must remember them as persons, not as mere numbers!

 

During the reading, the names of nearly 12,000 Roma victims (or fragments of these, as not everyone has a complete identity) will be uttered. This list is only a fraction of the 500,000-1.5 Roma who were victims of the Nazi persecution during World War II.

 

This year, with our 24-hour reading broadcast live on social media, we want to show how many innocent people, including many, many children, have fallen victim to Nazism and extremist ideology. Antigypsyism, exclusion and extreme rhetoric are still commonplace in Europe and Hungary today, so we consider it particularly important to illustrate where it has led and can lead. The hatred of Roma did not end in 1945, so we want to show that it is time to commit to ending and to eradicate antigypsyism at the national and international level and make this effort part of official policies. Our commemoration shows the broad commitment from civilians and NGOs and we hope that in this way it will find many followers.
