Das Konzert „In Memory Of My People“ für Gitarre und Orchester schuf Snétberger 1995 anlässlich des 50. Jahrestages der Befreiung der Konzentrationslager und der Beendigung der nationalsozialistischen Gewaltherrschaft. Im einleitenden Hallgató verarbeitete er eine Kindheitserinnerung, eine von seiner Großmutter oft gesungene Melodie, welche von den Sinti-Vorfahren überliefert ist . Snétberger widmete das Konzert dem Andenken der von den Nationalsozialisten verfolgten und ermordeten Sinti und Roma.

In 1995 Ferenc Snétberger composed his Concerto for Guitar and Orchestra,
"In Memory of My People", on the occasion the fiftieth year following the end of the Holocaust. Inspired by melodies of the gypsy tradition, the concerto is a powerful statement against human suffering. It has been performed by the composer himself with chamber orchestras in Hungary, Italy and Germany and also at the New York UN headquarters (International Holocaust Memorial Day, 2007).
