Speaking at the former concentration camp in Hodonín by Kunštát (Czech Republic) this past Sunday to dozens of people paying their respects to the victims of the Romani Holocaust there, activist Karel Holomek warned in his remarks against the constant division of society into "us" and "them". In his view, it is a good thing that the Czechs are starting to administer Romani matters.

"This is exactly what we need. We must get rid of the obsession with 'our' victims here and 'your' victims over there," Holomek said. Video of his remarks (in Czech only) can be seen at
