Abstract:

"This collection of essays explores, in depth, the life of the Sinti and Roma in Germany, their representation in German literature, and the relationships between the German and Romani languages. It gives background to their maltreatment and underlines the fact that the persecution of Gypsies during the Nazi period, which until the 1980s had been totally marginalised by historians, did not cease in 1945. The continuity of this anti-Gypsyism is traced to the present day, and the efforts, achievements and aspirations of the Sinti and Roma civil rights movement are highlighted."--BOOK JACKET.
