Storyline

The Roma and Sinti gypsy cultures have no written history. Little is known of the roughly half a million gypsies who were killed in Europe between 1940-1945, nor of the thousands of Italian Roma and Sinti nomads who were interned in the 80 concentration camps established by the Fascist regime in Italy. A time of suffering that some nomads do not want humanity to forget. The story of their holocaust needs to be told to the "gaje" or non-gypsies. Tzigari, an authentic spokesperson of the Romas has come forward with his personal and unique testimony. Built around his story, the documentary film reveals an undisclosed and exclusive scenario of WW2, shedding new light on some of the darkest pages that have been removed from the annals of human history. Based on the only biographical record written by a Roma in the Italian language and one of the very few in Europe. Written by official web site
