A collection of 240 photos of Gypsies taken during WW2 in Nazi run countries. It is an astonishing accumulation. The majority show benign encounters between soldiers and Gypsies - in camps, on the road, playing music, hawking etc and some beautiful portraits of Gypsies. But included are photos of Gypsies being rounded up, loaded onto lorries and trains, lined up to be shot, one even of Gypsies lying dead, doing forced labour, of them suffering in camps and even a resistance photo. These are photos purchased by me and other than about 20 have never been in the public view before. There is also a brief account of the Gypsy Holocaust itself, dismissing some of the myths and proving that the numbers killed must have been more than the official under-estimates (not least in Auschwitz). Ground breaking.
