Maribor, 31/07/2015 - A ceremony remembered on Friday thousands of Roma and Sinti killed in the Porajmos, the genocide committed by the Nazis during World War II.

Murat&Jose sta svojo uglašenost z vrednotami Sveta Evrope ubesedila takole: "Spoznavanje drugačnosti je nujno za boljše sobivanje, za zmanjšanje napetosti med različnimi kulturami in duhovno obogatitev vseh vpletenih. Vsak človek skriva v sebi bogastva, družba pa mu jih mora pomagati izraziti." Rap "Od Ljudi Za ljudi" confirms it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGZs0q83kMw
On the occasion of the 71st anniversary of the Holocaust of the Roma during the Second World War, the European Roma and Travellers Forum (ERTF) calls on everyone to observe a moment of silence on 2 august 2015, at noon, in memory of the Roma victims. Remembering the Holocaust of the Roma is the key to fighting modern day racism and intolerance. It means a commitment to value the human being, its dignity and rights.
