Transcript of Roma people during the Holocaust

Who are the Romani?
The Romani people or Gypsies as people call them are a race of people who traditionally lived nomadic lifestyles, have suffered great oppression, and are an amazing culture and people to learn about.
We are going to learn more about them, focusing on their part during the Holocaust
We are going to look at a picture that highlights some of the stereotypes about the Romani people.
Those woman would be called Gypsies. They were outcasts of society, and would travel the world together as families and separate tribes. Most Romani worked side jobs, like fortune telling or had crafts they were good at, such as blacksmiths or carpenters. They were spread throughout the world. We are going to focus on Gypsies in Europe during the Holocaust.
Holocaust Victims
Now the Romani people had always been Outcasts and many of them lived nomadic lives. When the Holocaust was in full swing many Romani people were also targeted by the Nazis.
Anti-Gypsy Laws
"In 1920 they were forbidden to enter parks and public baths; in 1925 a conference on ‘The Gypsy Question’ was held which resulted in the creation of laws requiring unemployed Romanies to be sent to work camps ‘for reasons of public security’, and for all Romanies to be registered with the police."-

Years after these rules, the Romani began to see drastic aggression towards them. They were starting to be deported to Concentration camps. They were considered "Aryan" but "not pure" due to cultural practices and being labeled outcasts.

"The third category of medical experimentation sought to advance the racial and ideological tenets of the Nazi worldview."

Most of these experiments were done to gypsies, twins, dwarfs and anyone with a physical uniqueness.
Nuremberg Laws used to find racial purity and find jews in bloodline
The chart was used to describe Nuremberg Laws, 1935. The "Nuremberg Laws" established basis for racial identification using untrue science. Only people with four German grandparents (four white circles in top row left) were of "German blood". A Jew is someone who descends from three or four Jewish grandparents (black circles in top row right). In the middle stood people of "mixed blood"
