August 2 is celebrated in Poland as the Sinti and Roma Genocide Remembrance Day. 76 years ago, on the night of August 2–3, 1944, the Germans liquidated the so-called Auschwitz II-Birkenau family camp for Gypsies (Zigeunerfamilienlager). About 4,300 children, women and men, the last Roma prisoners of the camp, were murdered in the gas chambers. Due to sanitary restrictions, part of the celebration was moved online. The victims were also commemorated on the grounds of the former German Nazi concentration and extermination camp Auschwitz II-Birkenau.
