Contents The arrival of the Gypsies on the territory of Romania -- The Gypsies in the Romanian territories during the Middle Ages -- Emancipation -- The Gypsies in inter-war Romania -- The policy of the Antonescu regime with regard to the Gypsies -- The Gypsies during the communist regime -- The current situation of the Gypsies (Roma) in Romania
Summary One of the greatest challenges during the process of European Union enlargement towards the east is how the issue of the Roma or Gypsies is tackled. This enormous social and political problem cannot be solved without proper historical studies like this book. It offers a synthesis of the entire Romanian and foreign literature on the subject, using original archival information. Achim presents and interprets the long history of the Gypsies, including slavery, the process of integration and assimilation into the majority population, as well as the historical roots of the marginalization of the Gypsies. The process of emancipation in the mid-nineteenth century also receives due treatment. The deportation of Gypsies to Transnistria during the Antonescu regime, between 1942 and 1944, is reconstructed in a separate chapter. The closing chapters elaborate on the policy toward the Gypsies in the decades after the Second World War, and its bearing on the situation of the Gypsy population in today's Romania
