Human Rights Officer Iva Ziza Commemorates Roma and Sinti Holocaust Victims

Human Rights Officer Iva Ziza joined the Museum of Romani Culture, Czech government officials, and diplomats in commemorating the Roma and Sinti victims of WWII Holocaust at Hodonin u Kunstatu.

From 1940 to 1944, over 1,300 people, including women and children, were imprisoned at the site, where many of them perished, were subject to forced labor, and transported to other concentration camps. The memorial and accompanying buildings are currently managed by the Museum of Romani Culture.

The participants laid wreaths at Zalov, the burial site of some of the victims, and had the opportunity to view the newly opened permanent exhibition.
