Since I was a little girl I’ve been fascinated by stories of gypsies and tinkers, the folks who wandered from town to town in caravans, and collected at night around bonfires to dance and sing. My modern nomad soul still loves the idea of the freedom of the road, seeing new places, and at the same time having a community of fellow souls to travel with.
While for me the word gypsies is full of romance and adventure, some of the Roma people prefer not to be called that anymore. The term “gypsy ” has and still is used in a derogatory way. The Roma people continue to be subjected to persecution and oppression. Watch this portrait through time on their history and culture.
