The decision of the German Parliament to allocate funds for the construction of a memorial in memory of the genocide of Yazidis is a commendable step towards recognizing the terrible crimes committed against this community and providing a place for healing and remembrance. This gesture not only serves as a bitter reminder of the atrocities committed against Yazidis, but also represents a tangible manifestation of the German Government's commitment to the protection of human rights and the elimination of historical injustice.

The project was largely promoted by the expert of the Human Rights Committee Derya Turk-Nakhbaur: "The planned memorial will become the central place of collective memory of Yazidi community", says Derya. "With this project, we are implementing our declaration of recognition of the genocide and making an important contribution to the future."

According to the latest data, about 250,000 Yazidis live in Germany — this is the largest Yazidi diaspora in Europe. Many of this number became victims of the genocide in 2014 and were forced to flee. But it is worth noting that Yazidis continue to be deported in Germany.

The expressed willingness of the Yazidi community to actively participate in the memorial project is evidence of their steadfastness and unwavering determination to preserve their cultural heritage and honor the memory of their loved ones. Their participation in the project ensures that the memorial faithfully reflects their experience, pays due respect to the victims and serves as a beacon of hope for future generations.

The creation of this memorial marks an important milestone in the efforts of the international community to officially recognize the Yazidi genocide and provide opportunities for justice to the victims. It also sends a powerful message of solidarity to the Yazidi community, demonstrating that their suffering has not been forgotten and that they are united in their desire for healing and remembrance.

We sincerely hope that this project will serve as a catalyst for further actions to solve the problem of the Yazidi genocide, promote reconciliation and strengthen the global commitment to prevent the recurrence of such atrocities. The decision of the German Parliament sets a precedent for other countries, and the unwavering spirit of the Yazidi community serves as an inspiration for all those who strive for peace, justice and human dignity.
