The Forgotten Genocide is the first documentary to look at the persecution of Sinti and Roma on a European scale, shedding new light on their exclusion country by country, and on the decisive role of “racial science” in the formulation of Nazi policy.
It rejects the racist stereotype of ” a nomadic people without a country” by revealing the diversity of social and national traditions that make up the singular romani worldview.
The destiny of European Sinti and Roma families is told through an extraordinary collection of rare archival footage and uncompromising historical narration, combined with survivor testimony. This remarkable film juxtaposes the darkness of political history with the radiant vitality of survivors.
