Romani history

5.4
The Nazi Period
in the Baltic states

In the Baltic States the killing of Roma started immediately after the German attack in 1941. SS and German military murdered the Roma who fell into their hands. Later on, when the mobile forces were transformed into stationary units and augmented by police units, they proceeded with support from civil occupation authorities. In Estonia only 5 to 10 percent of the pre-war Romani population survived the German occupation.
