Roma people commemorate rebellion at former Auschwitz death camp

May 16th, 2018

Representatives of the Roma community in Poland paid tribute to the Roma and Sinti people, who 74 years ago rebelled against their oppressors in the Gypsy camp, which was part of the former Nazi German Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp in southern Poland. On May 16, 1944, the Germans planned to eliminate the Gypsy camp by murdering its prisoners. At that time, around 6,000 Sinti and Roma people would be sent to the gas chambers. "We remember May 16 as one of the most heroic events that took place during the Nazi German Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp's operation," Roman Kwiatkowski, chairman of the Association of Roma in Poland, said on Wednesday.
