Okay then, what book that you read in your lifetime most impacted/educated you?
I’ll go for ‘Bury me Standing’, it taught me that they are few more oppressed groups on earth in our time than the Roma people – and because their history is largely a spoken one, rather than written, nobody even knows their true story.
And to this day, in Europe especially, they are treated like pure and utter scum. Another, largely, untold story, because, you know, Europe is so civilized.
And, of course, the ‘gypsies’, as a group, were, after the Jewish people, one of the chief victims of the Nazi regime, another story that has, on the whole, been ignored. A people with few friends.
How about you? Name your books.
