Abstract:

"In this book German Sinto (Gypsy) Walter Winter relates his remarkable wartime experience. One of nine children, he was conscripted into the Germany navy only to be discharged on 'racial grounds'. In 1943, together with two siblings, he was deported to the 'Gypsy Camp' of Auschwitz-Birkenau. Over a year later, shortly before the extermination of the entire Gypsy camp, he was deported to Ravensbruck, and from there to Sachsenhausen concentration camp. Grotesquely, before the war was over he was reconscripted and forced to fight against the Red Army on the Russian front." "Walter Winter recounts his memories of Nazi persecution with courage and compassion. He does not flinch from recounting the dreadful crimes he witnessed in the camps and the cruel deaths of so many, including his first wife, who died in labour. Yet despair is held at bay by his own personal bravery in confronting authority, once beating up an SS guard and on another occasion confronting the notorious Dr. Mengele to request extra rations for starving Sinti children in his block. Driven to the brink of starvation, he risked his life more than once to get food for himself and those around him. Despite seeing the worst of humanity, he was always willing to see the good in individuals, including some members of the SS." "In this edition, extensive notes throw new light on the policy of the Third Reich and successive post-war governments towards the Sinti and Roma in Germany."--BOOK JACKET.
