Roma Holocaust Memorial Day is held every year at Auschwitz on August 2, the anniversary of the killing of more than 4,000 Roma and Sinti prisoners, including women and children, in the camp’s gas chambers in 1944.

The event usually brings together former Auschwitz prisoners from various countries as well as Polish and foreign government officials and diplomats.

Only 2,000 of the some 23,000 Roma and Sinti from 14 countries who were imprisoned at Auschwitz survived the ordeal, according to some estimates.
