Read full description of the books:
It took me ages to track down this book which is a shame as it is well worth reading. The Roma are often referred to as the forgotten victims of the Holocaust ( or porajmos as the Roma refer to it)
And the violins stopped playing by Alexander Ramati is about a Polish Gypsy family who live a rather comfortable life in Warsaw at the beginning of World War II. Believing themselves to be safe from Nazi persecution because they are Aryans they can't see the writing on the wall that soon their time will be up. Roman Mirga - who is the narrator of this book is very shrewd and realises very quickly that they are in danger and need to flee Poland. He is able to convince his family of the danger they are in and decide to go to Brest Litovsk where the rest of their people are living in a semi nomadic existence.
When they arrive at the Gypsy camp the majority of them refuse to believe that the Nazis will persecute them as they are Aryans. It's not until some Gypsies are killed that they realise that they do need to flee. It's decided that they will go to Hungary as it's still a free country. They arrive in Hungary on the day the Nazis invade the country and they are then arrested...
I won't give anymore away...
