TLI remembers the 16th of May 1944


On the 16th of May 1944 the Roma and Sinti imprisoned in the so called “Gypsy camp” in Auschwitz II-Birkenau resisted against the SS who intended to exterminate them in the gas chambers that night. Following this uprising, half of the inmates were deported to other concentration camps such as Ravensbrück and Buchenwald. The “Gypsy camp” was then liquidated several months later during the night of the 2nd to 3rd of August 1944 when the nearly 3,000 remaining inmates were exterminated.
