Journey into the world of the Roma - a people who through the ages have been both romanticized and vilified in popular culture, politics and art, and who have endured centuries of intolerance and persecution. Visiting 11 countries and interviewing dozens of Roma artists, historians, musicians and Holocaust survivors, this revealing film documents their culturally rich but often difficult lives, taking us back to ancient times and forward to the little-known story of Roma genocide at the hands of Nazis during World War II. As we watch the incredible story of the Roma unfold, both the people and their history come to life through the interplay of their evocative music and poetry, interwoven with true stories told by the survivors of the camps. As intolerance is on the rise in European politics, this remarkable film reminds us that ethnic minorities all too often fall prey to racism and genocide.

An incredibly well done film. Beautiful scenery and colours combine with tragic memories and horrors of another time.
Some of the reminiscences are stark and painful to hear.
This is a chapter not as well known as other genocides.
This documentary will further the awareness of what happened so many years ago.

memorable and palatable although I still have nightmares when I watch this history

A must see film. It shows how conveniently we humans shut our eyes and ears to let horrible things going on to others who are defenseless and powerless.

An informative and well researched DVD about the Roma people. Delves into their past and the persecution they suffered during WWII and the holocaust. It also describes present day persecution and prejudice. An eye opening glimpse into a race of people that many people forget.
