Isaac Blake is representing the Romani Cultural and Arts Company at the DIKH HE NA BISTER – Roma Genocide Remembrance Initiative 2018
Krakow/Auschwitz (Poland), 29th July – 4th August 2018
Around the Roma Holocaust Memorial Day on 2 August 2018, about 250 young Roma and non-Roma will gather from across Europe in Krakow and Auschwitz-Birkenau in the unique youth event “Dikh he na bister” (Look and don’t forget).
The Roma Genocide Remembrance Initiative aims at raising awareness among young Europeans, civil society and decision-makers about the Roma Genocide, as well as about the mechanisms of anti-gypsyism in a challenging context of rising racism, hate speech and extremism in Europe. With this initiative Roma youth advocates for the official recognition of 2 August as the Roma Holocaust Memorial Day to pay homage to the victims, heroes, survivors, and strengthen the identity based on the deep knowledge of the past.
TernYpe aims to empower young Roma to have a voice to become key agents of change, and to foster solidarity among young people! We have a strong vision to make a change in Europe. Young Roma and non-Roma believe that we can build a European culture based on respect, dialogue, human rights and equal opportunities. ‘Dikh He Na Bister’ strongly follows it’s mission to create space for young people to become active citizens through empowerment, mobilisation, self-organisation and participation.
