The 62nd anniversary of the liquidation of the Gypsies' camp was celebrated on Wednesday at the premises of the former Nazi Auschwitz II - Birkenau death camp in Poland, the PAP news agency reported.

More than 200 people took part in the commemoration, including gypsies and the Auschwitz concentration camps survivors from Poland and other European countries. Wreaths were laid at the foot of the monument to the murdered Romas.

Sixty-two years ago, Nazis gassed nearly 3,000 Roma men, women and children in the Gypsies' camp in Birkenau. The day was later commemorated as the Roma Holocaust Remembrance Day.

President of the Association of Romas in Poland Roman Kwiatkowski appealed in his address for keeping in living memory victims of the Roma Holocaust.
