Romea.cz – Romani victims of recent murders in Hungary commemorated in Canada and Europe

It has been three years since a tragic event took place in the small northern Hungarian village of Tatárszentgyörgy, where a gang of assassins murdered a five-year-old boy and his father. The incident was part of a series of anti-Romani murders that took place throughout the country from 2008 – 2009.

The six victims of that murder spree were remembered yesterday in Canada and various cities across Europe. Civic associations working on issues of racism and Romani integration chose 23 February as the day of remembrance. That was the day that the most tragic of the murders, involving the five-year-old, took place.
