World Roma Congress

After the Second World War, the World Roma Congress in 1971 was one of the most important events for Roma in the 20th century. Roma from many European countries met in London to discuss the future of Roma in the world. Many of the representatives were Holocaust survivors or partisans. World War II and reparations from Germany were therefor an important issue in this movement. The movement had been formed ten years earlier by migrant Roma in France.

The most important result of the First World Roma Congress was the agreement to use the self-designation Roma and to reject all stigmatizing foreign designations.
Other conferences followed in various countries. In 1981 the Third World Roma Congress took place in Göttingen, Germany. An important result of the Congress was that in 1982 the German government finally recognized the racially motivated genocide of the Roma and Sinti.

After more than 40 years Roma organizations from all over the world and the general secretary of the First World Roma Congress, Grattan Puxon, came together to organize a World Roma Congress in Germany again. It will open on 16 May, Roma Resistance Day, 2023. On 16 May, 1944, Roma and Sinti successfully resisted the SS in Auschwitz-Birkenau and prevented their extermination planned for that day. Therefore, this day stands for the resistance of Roma, not only against their extermination, but also against the racism and discrimination of the present
