"Pharrajimos: The Fate of the Roma During the Holocaust recounts the largely unknown history of the Hungarian Roma during World War II. The anthology offers readers chronologies of the Pharrajimos in the Third Reich and in Hungary; general background on the Roma in Europe before and during World War II; detailed accounts of the Pharrajimos in Hungary - the initiatives of Laszlo Endre, the mass murder of Gypsies at Varpalota and Inota-Lake Grabler, and the events at Komaromi Csillagerod - and the Holocaust in Gypsy folk poetry. Twelve oral histories also present first-hand accounts of the survivors. The work includes a detailed list of events by location as well as a series of appendixes on the struggle to raise awareness of the Pharrajimos."--BOOK JACKET.

Pharrajimos: Fate of the Roma during the Holocaust
I would have loved the book, but the scanned book that I purchased is full of technical issues. there are SEVERAL pages in black, which I cannot
read. I have contacted Technical Support, however, they will not give me a deadline on when they will assist me. Sad.

I have not yet read this book. However, I am bothered by their use of the word "Roma" as the inclusive term for Romani people. Roma is a specific sub-group. I have attended a conference led by Romani scholar, Ian Hancock, in Austin, Texas, and I understand that the preferred term is therefore, Romani people and Romani language.
