Contents: Preface; Centuries of Persecution; Ominous Signs; A Deadly Journey; The Effort of Survival; Gypsy Genocide; Free at Last; The 'Gypsy Problem' Continues; Epilogue.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book is well written and well organized, and the graphic interviews from survivors add life to the book. -- Patricia Cooper, University of Southern Colorado
Alt and Folts have done a remarkable job of remembering, of documenting, of talking to the survivors, of recounting the Asian-European history of the Gypsies. * The Book Reader *
Its strength lies in the individual stories of several Gypsy survivors, which are used to exemplify and to bring to life specific points of the historical narration. * CHOICE *
