schema:reviewBody""First published in 1995, Gypsies under the Swastika was the first book to bring the story of the Nazi persecution of the Gypsies to a general readership. More than that, it sets the events of the twentieth century within the context of centuries of harassment and mistreatment of Gypsies born of deep-rooted prejudice in European society." "The attempted genocide of the Gypsies by the Nazis has not received the same attention as that of the Jews. After the final liberation in 1945, Gypsy survivors did not commit their stories to paper but, in most cases, tried to forget the horrors they had experienced. Some passed on their accounts by word of mouth. The authors of this book first began to assemble the sparse documentation and to gather eyewitness accounts in 1969 in order to support claims for reparations. In the years since this initial research was done further material has come to light: more names have emerged of Gypsies who fought with the partisans and of the small number of non-Gypsies who tried to protect the innocent victims of fascism at the risk of their own lives." "This revised edition contains an expanded section on Romania as well as new illustrations and reference notes. The text has been updated to reflect newly available source material."--Jacket."
