‘Time for justice for Roma’, Senior expert urges on Holocaust Remembrance Day 

27 January 2020

An estimated half a million people from the Roma minority perished in Europe during the Holocaust, but their persecution under Nazi rule is still widely ignored today, according to an expert on the issue.  

Dan Pavel Doghi, Senior Adviser on Roma and Sinti issues for the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) says the Roma people should finally receive the justice they deserve. 

Mr. Doghi attended a United Nations Holocaust Memorial event at UN Headquarters in New York where he spoke about the importance of education to help fight racism and discrimination against vulnerable minorities. 

UN News’s Ana Carmo started by asking him about the fate of the Roma under the Nazi regime.
