== == In terms of the Holocaust, their blood was seen as "dirty," just as any darker, swarthy ethnic group was viewed. They were unlike the "pure" fair-skinned Aryan race, and therefore persecuted in order to keep their bloodlines and influence out of German culture. ___ Actually, the gypsies migrated to Europe from northern India had a better claim to be "Aryan" than any other group. The main reasons for prejudice were: * In parts of eastern and central Europe gypsies were the only ethnic group that could be owned as slaves (about 1600-1850). * They were thought to lead a nomadic existence. * Non-gypsies knew very little about them.
