Statement on Romani Genocide Remembrance Day

The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister associated with Foreign Affairs, and the Honourable Ahmed Hussen, Minister associated with Housing and Diversity and Inclusion, today issued the next statement: “Racism, discrimination, and hate have no place in Canada. Allow us to honour the memory from the Roma and Sinti victims of the Holocaust by position united against prejudice plus discrimination. May we usually fight to ensure that these horrible acts of hatred in no way happen again. ”  “At home plus abroad, Canada continues to knuckle down to fight prejudice, protect human rights, and promote inclusion and respect with regard to diversity. As a member of the Global Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s Committee on the Genocide of the Roma, we strongly support the development of educational materials on the background and consequences of this mass atrocity for teachers plus policy-makers. These efforts continue to be an important part of building awareness and understanding of the genocide. “In the yrs leading up to and during the Holocaust, an estimated 500, 000 Roma and Sinti children, females, and men were killed by the Nazis and their own collaborators. This horrific criminal offense is known in Romani because the Porajmos [the devouring] and the Samudaripen [the mass killing], and it must never end up being forgotten. August 2, 2022 : Ottawa, Ontario – Global Affairs Canada “Today, we reaffirm Canada’s determination to preserve the particular memory of the victims of this terrible atrocity. We also recognize that the discrimination that will Roma and Sinti populations continue to face worldwide is in part due to the neglect associated with remembering this dark chapter of history.
