This book describes how German policies of Gypsy persecution from 1875 onwards led to the establishment of the chillingly named Race Hygiene Research Centre in 1936 which under its Director, Rober Ritter, delivered the justification for the eventual destruction of the Gypsies in the Nazi death camps. Subsequent chapters describe the origin of internment camps as a means of clearing the cities of Gypsies and the eventual development of the death camps in Nazi Germany at Buchenwald, Ravensbruck and Auschwitz
