The people known as the Roma (they prefer that word over the derogatory "Gypsy") suffered between 500,000 and 600.000 deaths at the hands of the Nazis in World War II. Most of those were at Auschwitz.


They most certainly do not prefer to be called 'Roma'. The Roma were one tribe particular to southern Germany (and the region) there were a dozen other tribes that were almost completely eliminated it is insulting to pretend that they did not exist.
