The photo above shows Settela looking through a window on a freight train bound for Auschwitz-Birkenau.
You can read about the Roma and Sinti in this recent news article:
One must never call these people “Gypsies” which implies that they gyp people. Years ago, the word Gypsy was created for these innocent people who have never gypped anyone.
I previously blogged about these people at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2011/02/05/famous-photo-of-settela-steinbach-a-gypsy-girl-who-was-gassed-at-auschwitz/
The following quote is from the news article:
WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Roma Holocaust survivors and community leaders paid tribute at the former Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp Tuesday to its Roma and Sinti victims who, like the Jews, were condemned to destruction under Nazi Germany’s murderous ideology. […]
Commemorations are held every year on Aug. 2, marking the day in 1944 when the last group of nearly 2,900 Roma and the closely related Sinti at the Nazi camp in occupied Poland were killed in the gas chambers.
