Yahad – In Unum and Roma Dignity are working to identify the mass graves of Roma who were victims of genocide in Eastern Europe and to press for the protection and memorialization of these sites.
The organizations are making the results of their investigations available to historians, academics and the families of victims. Presentations also are regularly made to government bodies and public audiences.
The organizations also gather information and images regarding the daily existence and living conditions of the Roma people in today’s Europe. The objective is to portray the human face of the Roma people, to underline that each human being is not the prejudiced stereotype of a thief or beggar but rather a mother, a grandfather or a child.
