Romani people from all over Europe commemorated the victims of Nazi murder on the occasion of Roma Holocaust Memorial Day. From 2 August to 3 August 1944, the Nazis murdered 2 898 Roma and Sinti in the gas chambers of the concentration and extermination camp at Auschwitz-Birkenau. Other Roma were murdered at the concentration camps in Bełżec, Chełmno, Majdanek, Sobibór and Treblinka. Others, whose numbers are difficult to estimate, were shot dead and buried in mass graves in the forests.
