Three little Roma (Gypsy) boys comfort one another in front of a unit of German soldiers. The location and date are unknown, possibly France or Poland. The image was most likely taken during a deportation round up to a concentration camp or ghetto. The genocide of Gypsies during the war is called the Porajmos, which means the “devouring” or the ”destruction" in the Romani language. Unknown date and location (possibly France or Poland). Europe. Circa 1940-1944.
