In the framework on the Nazis’ racial ideology Roma and Sinti were recorded, deported into extermination camps and finally murdered.

The author‘s family history allows the readers to understand that these were real persons, humans with their own unique biographies and histories of repression. It also aims at showing the consequences that persecution and murder had on the next generation. A multi-leveled correspondence creates a juxtaposition that not only challenges the reader to critically confront the evidence relating to the perpetrators but also supports emphatic understanding and differentiated self-reflection.
