The Holocaust as a scar on the body and soul of the European Roma and Sinti.

Little is known about the tragedy of the Roma during World War II. They were murdered by the dozens, hundreds and thousands; in concentration camps, at the edges of mass graves and roadsides.

A few survived and keep their memory and scars as proof. In a world where fascism is once again prevalent, they are one of the last living witnesses to the Holocaust. Raymond Gurême, a 91-year-old French ‘Manouche’ with an extraordinary will to survive, who escaped from concentration camps a total of three times, is one of them.
