While it may evoke ancient Vlach Romani values it bears little correspondence to Rózsiʼs life. In her daily transactions with her neighbours, including elderly peasants, Rózsi is a model citizen who commands widespread affection and respect. 12 GADJE In Rózsiʼs story the Gypsies, though poor, were trusting and shared what little they had with those in need. They welcomed the lost Gadjo boy and treated him as one of their own. The Gypsies revealed all their secrets to the boy, holding nothing back.
21 Transnistria, formerly Soviet territory, had been occupied by Axis forces and placed under a Romanian administration. Many of the settled Roma deported to the region were given no opportunity to collect warm clothes, blankets or cooking utensils before their departure. Around 11,500 nomadic Gypsies from Romania had already been forcibly resettled in Transnistria by the end of August, while the territory had also become a dumping ground for Romaniaʼs Jews. A total of 180,000 Romanian Jews were deported to Transnistria between 1941 and 1944.
This lack of acknowledgement can tell us much about attitudes towards the Roma, but also something about the Roma themselves. Usually, it is the victims of any major human rights abuse who are the ﬁrst and the loudest in articulating their anger and sense of injustice. For a long time, the silence of Gadje about the Nazi persecution of the Gypsies was very nearly matched by the silence of the Roma. For years, the Roma seemed almost to collude with the tacit consensus not to draw too much attention to this neglected aspect of the War.
