Revue Études tsiganes - Territories of extermination in Eastern Europe (1941-1944)
The persecutions of the Roma in Central and Eastern Europe during World War II are known, but up until now, barely documented. Important work has been conducted over the course of the last 50 years. But what remains to be done is enormous. Even if the written sources exist, a number of situations remains in silence, forgotten and barely stated in the archives, and must still be made the object of advanced investigations.
Yet, this depends a lot on the direct witnesses who are disappearing, little by little. It's within this context that the organization Yahad-In Unum and the Roma association Roma Dignity, undertook an investigative work with the Roma who lived through the tragedy of the genocide between 1941 and 1944 in Estern Europe.
The records published here are the fruit of the cooperation between these organizations and the journal Études Tsiganes (Gypsy Studies). First, it offers a historical and legal perspective of the politic led by the Nazis against the Roma, then proposes the diverse contributions of the Romanian authorities in the deportation of the Romanian Roma to Transnistria as well as a range of more localized investigations on the massacres perpetrated by the Einsatzgruppen and other units in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, in the Baltic countries and in Poland.
This issue of the review was realized with the support of de Foundation for the Memory of the Shoah.
