Mehelen: The exhibition in the Dosin barracks has the goal to break the stigma regarding the Roma: "We are just human like everyone else"

In the Dosin Barracks in Mechelen there is an exhibition which started from the 15th of June, the exhibition titled as “Reflections – Roma in Belgium”. The exhibition shows the portraits of nine individuals of the Roma community. These portraits are a work of the “AP Hoges” students in Antwerpen, intended to eliminate the prejudices towards the Roma, often called as Gypsies. “This exhibition showed that we are just people, just like everyone else”, says the woman from one of the portraits Merima from Borgerhaut. During World War II, 353 Roma were deported from the Dosin barracks in Mechelen in Auschwitz-Birkenau because they were Roma. Today, many prejudices against the diverse community still exist and the term "Gypsies" is still misused.

IRU Reaction

The International Roma Union - IRU is deeply disappointed and at the same time reacts most openly regarding the tragic event that took place on Saturday, June 19, 2021 in Teplice - Czech Republic. The IRU is reacting to the fact that there are attempts to minimize this case, and to have a different direction. In regards to that is the statement of the Czech Minister of Interior Mr. Jan Hamaćek who openly supports the police officers who having in mind the indications, may be directly responsible for the death of the young Roma man. What is even more devastating is the fact that they deny any responsibility and say that the cause of death was drug use by the late Roma man. Such passive attitude of the police towards this case is obvious, and that is why the IRU calls upon the Czech Ministry of Interior, the Czech state...
