The National Socialist Genocide of the Roma in the German-occupied Soviet Union

Report for the Documentary and Cultural Centre of German Sinti and Roma

The National Socialist genocide of the Sinti and Roma was suppressed from the collective memory of German society for a long time after 1945. This gradually changed only because of the civil rights movement of the Sinti and Roma at the end of 1970s. Academic research on this important subject has made enormous progress in the past two decades. Relatively detailed information on the process and the extent of the "Gypsy" persecution in the "Reich", i.e. in Germany and Austria, is available in the meantime. Some gaps in the research have also been closed since the eastern European archives have been opened up. This particularly applies to the countries of south and east central Europe. However, the persecution of the Soviet Roma is one of the least investigated areas in the academic assessment of the National Socialist genocide of the Sinti and Roma.
