Čhavorenge to commemorate victims of the Romani holocaust - August 2013

Hodonín u Kunštátu – 18th August 2013

Based on an imperial order, the so called „gypsy camps“ used for the forced gradual concentration of Moravian and Bohemian Roma were opened outside the cities of Hodonín u Kunštátu and Lety u Písku on 2nd August 1942. The first transports to the Auschwitz concentration camp set out in March 1943, where nearly all the originál Czech and Moravian Roma were wiped out. And it is here, the place where the concentration camp at Hodonín u Kunštátu used to stand, that an annual memorial ceremony to commemorate the Romani holocaust victims is held. The Museum of Romani Culture in Brno has been taking care of the memorial and the whole event itself since 1997. This is a unique opportunity for the children from the choir to think about past events which have influenced and to this day, even if only symbolically, still influence lives of the Roma living in the Czech society. The presence of a Roma choir at this memorial ceremony is also an opportunity for everyone involved to give some thought to whether the roots that nourished the Roma and Jewish holocaust might still be a dangerous part of our society.
