About 700 unregistered Roma children will receive special birth certificates

Approximately 700 unregistered persons in the registry of births with the new legal solution will be able to realize their human rights, ie to have access to health, employment, social protection and education, was emphasized by the Sector for Coordination and Technical Support of the Minister of Labor and Social Policy at the closing conference "Together for Equal Rights of Roma Children" within the project "Building strong local networks for the promotion of the protection of the rights of Roma children".

According to the new Law on persons without regulated civil status, it is envisaged that the UCBM will continue the process of transformation from a temporary electronic register into a regular birth register.

From June 10 this year and in the next 30 days, persons who are not registered will be allowed to go to the nearest maternity service and fill out a questionnaire in order to enter the temporary electronic register.

Otherwise this is a result of the project implemented by the CMOS carriers from Greece and the RRC from Skopje, where ZDDICM from Skopje, as well as SP BTR Production, made a complete contribution, which also produced a documentary about this problem.

The project that has been implemented over the past 18 months has been designed to support local coordination mechanisms and structures that have the role to advance the integration of Roma through advancing their capacities for the functional implementation of Roma protection initiatives that are in line with national and EU policies targeting the integration of the Roma community in the Republic of Northern Macedonia.

The brave Roma who fought in the Soviet red armed forces (1941-1945)

The Roma, have lived a nomadic lifestyle for centuries, migrating across Europe from Asia. As they have kept their distinctive language and culture, many Roma communities have remained outside of the civic society within which they entered. As they remained ‘unknown’ by the host communities they entered, the Roma were often misrepresented as ‘evil’, ‘pagan’, ‘disruptive’ and ‘criminal’.

As matters transpired, the Soviet reforms proved very popular amongst the Roma populations across the USSR, which saw many thousands volunteer to serve in the Soviet Red Army, Red Airforce, Red Artillery, frontline medicine, reconnaissance and even the Red Cavalry.

This activity was motivated by the fact that Hitler having come to power in Germany in 1933, began an immediate policy of persecution of the ‘lower races’. Along with the Jews, the Roma were also persecuted. Since the mid-1930s, they were sterilized, later placed in Concentration Camps, and in the territories occupied by the fascists they simply destroyed.

When the German troops invaded the territory of the USSR, the Soviet Roma did not hesitate to consider whether they should take up arms. Settled Roma attached to military registration and enlistment offices, among others, went to the front.

According to various estimates, the Nazis Germans killed from 500 thousand to a million Roma, including 200 to 500 thousand Roma from the Soviet Union. The only monument in the world for the loss of the nomadic people is in Berlin.
