2014 marks the 70th anniversary of the genocide committed against Roma
during the Second World War. It is by far the greatest tragedy in Roma
Due to the significance of this topic and in the light of the 70th
anniversary, the ERTF would like to mark August 2nd in a special way in
2014. We are therefore looking to issue a postal stamp, in order to spread
awareness and to promote the importance of August 2nd.
