The very best german docu, I have ever seen about the Porajmos
, was the german docu from the 2011
the title of the docu I still remember:
"Wir haben doch nichts getan ..."
The full docu is still online, 29 minutes

No comment from me.
P.S. There was another almost 60 minutes long docu about the Porajmos
, former Häftlinge
visiting the Konzentrationslager complex once again.
Watched the docu more than 40 years ago on a late night german TV documentary, hope to find a link later...
The still common term "Zigeuner" is still used, in everyday German language.
I myself, actually old enough to know the history behind this term, the term is still in my head, and almost still everywhere...
"Herumzigeunern", keep the laundry into the house, "Zigeuner", knife grinder always occupied with the term "Zigeuner", etc, etc, etc...
I still remember a man in his mid 30s in the FL community, we were cooking for all the people every sunday morning,
preparing a very large brunch for more 120 people.
He was chopping tons of onions with a very large kitchen knife, his first chance to get his hands on a knife after 6 months
of probationary period.
He said to me, we "Zigeuner", we know, how to handle a knife, when we hatch out the body of our mothers,
all of us have already a knife in one of ours hands...
A minute later, he laughed his ass off very loud, still chopping all these onions for the brunch, with an evil grin.
Es ist im Leben wichtig, viel zu wissen.
Manchmal ist es noch wichtiger, zu wissen, daß man nichts weiß.
