The photo exhibition will be visible in Strasbourg from 3 to 6 April; it shows on 20 panels key moments and actions of the civil rights struggle of Sinti and Roma of the last 45 years, such as the hunger strike in the former concentration camp Dachau, the struggle for the recognition of the Roma Genocide, and as a national minority. The exhibition gives recognition to the struggle of Holocaust survivors and of a younger generation of Roma activists, as well it highlights the continuous struggle against antigypsyism and for minority rights.
The event takes place in the framework of the EU Roma Week held under the high patronage of the European Commission and European Parliament. Roma week 2017 is held from 27th March to 3rd April 2017 in Brussels and Strasbourg to mark the occasion of International Roma Day on 8th April 2017 and a number of workshop/events are organised to raise awareness about antigypsyism and other issues faced by Roma people.
