The Holocaust, the final solution for Jews, is infamous in history but this is the story of another community that suffered in the Holocaust: The Gypsies. Told by Demeter Fox and Zuzzi, the story outlines their journey to freedom in the German-occupied territory of Slovakia.
Robert Dawson became interested in Gypsies at an early age. Evicted from education at the age of 14, he became a journalist, a crime and police specialist and a headteacher. Since then he has written full time and is an acknowledged authority on British Romanies.
