Historical Amnesia: The Romani Holocaust

The "Gypsies" in Europe who prefer to be called Romanies are of northern Indian origin and believed to have arrived in Europe in AD 1280. The Nazis liquidated them in large numbers during 1939-1945. At least half a million of them died along with Jews at the hands of the Nazis, but unlike the Jews, they have not received the attention they deserve. They remain victims of anti-"Gypsyism" and live as third class citizens in Europe even today.
