Today, Sunday, 1 August, at 12:00 CET the traditional commemorative ceremony honoring the Romani victims of Nazism will be held at the site of the unmarked burial ground for the victims of the WWII-era concentration camp at Lety u Písku, Czech Republic. ROMEA TV will be broadcasting live.

"Esteemed friends, the members of the Committee for the Redress of the Roma Holocaust would like to invite you to our traditional commemorative ceremony dedicated to the Romani victims of Nazism. For a second year, thanks to the former administration of Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka, we are able to organize this ceremony, with the support of the Czech Ministry of Culture, in a more dignified setting at the burial site for the members of our families who were prisoners of the concentration camp near near the village of Lety u Písku," reads the invitation that has been sent to news server by the chair of the Committee for the Redress of the Roma Holocaust, Čeněk Růžička. 

"As we visit this symbolic place of the suffering of the Roma and Sinti, let's tell all the xenophobes, neo-Nazis and racists that hatred of any minority will not find support in our country," the press release says. The ceremony will begin at noon with the Czech national anthem and the hymn of the Romani prisoners of the Nazi concentration camps.
