European Grassroots Antiracist Movement postpones involvement by internationals in Lety commemoration

4.5.2017 12:23

Romani people from all over Europe who were planning to attend the commemorative ceremony on 13 May at Lety u Písku to honor the memory of the Romani victims of the Holocaust are reportedly postponing their visit until 24 June. The announcement of the Czech Government that it plans to resign is the reason given for the decision by Benjamin Abtan, head of the European Grassroots Antiracist Movement, who originally planned to bring MEPs and MPs to the annual ceremony on 13 May.

The traditional commemoration is organized by the Committee for the Redress of the Roma Holocaust (Výbor pro odškodnění romského holokaustu - VPORH), which brings together the former prisoners of the Nazi camps and their relatives. VPORH is organizing a bus from Prague, the Musem of Romani Culture is organizing a bus from Brno.
