Facing Antisemitism and Antigypsyism
Antisemitism and antigypsyism are jeopardising social cohesion in Europe by condoning human rights violations and stirring up hatred. They have a long and disquieting tradition. In the National Socialist era they paved the way for the murder of the European Jews and Roma. Against the backdrop of this history, the Foundation EVZ supports the systematic and long-term examination of discrimination, marginalisation and hatred practised against Roma and Jews in Europe.
The Foundation “Remembrance, Responsibility and Future” (EVZ) called in the countries Czech Republic, Hungary, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Russia and Ukraine for producing recommendations for action in the fight against antisemitism and antigypsyism. Systematic inventory of antisemitic and antigypsyist phenomena, counter strategies and civil society actors were part of the project.
Deadline for applications was on 15 July 2016.
