really liked it

I really enjoyed this book. It is about a Romani woman (gypsy) growing up in Slovakia during the second world war, and how she becomes shunned from the people she loves, and what happens to her people when the Iron Curtain comes down. I never knew that over a milliion Romani were killed in the concentration camps. I thought it was a relevant read, with the current controversy of the exportation of the Romani peoples from France.
