      ''...return unlikely'' remembering the genocide of Europe's Roma

      Romani Resistance Day is commemorated internationally on 16 May. It marks the first attempt of the SS to close the section of the Auschwitz death camp in which ‘Gypsies’ were interned and the successful fight of the inmates to prevent it. Three months later, in August 1944, the ‘Auschwitz Gypsy Camp’ was finally closed and the last surviving inmates sent to the gas chambers. 75 years later, this lecture by Eve Rosenhaft, Professor of German Historical Studies at the University, reflects on the events all over Europe that led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Roma and others labelled ‘gypsies’ between 1935 and 1945, on forms of commemoration, and on the legacies of the genocide today. The lecture marks the conclusion of the exhibition “…don’t forget the photos, it’s very important” the Nazi Persecution of Central German Sinti and Roma which will be on display in the Liverpool Cathedral from Saturday 4 May to Monday 13 May.
