See 1 question about And the Violins Stopped Playin. Nonfiction Books about Gypsies & Travellers. Roman Migra's story (produced by Alexander Ramati using Migra's diary writing) is very touching and sad, especially because the occurrences are true. After being sent to Auschwitz, Roman becomes a translator for Dr. Josef Mengele while his father plays the violin to calm the Jews as they enter the gas chambers. Despite the subject being what it is, this was an easy read, well-written, and is not as depressing as one might think.

Thousands of Gypsies perished.

And the Violins Stopped Playing: A Story of the Gypsy Holocaust Library Binding – September 1, 1986. Thousands of Gypsies perished. Ramati planned to do a book on this lesser-known episode when he accidentally encountered a Gypsy who had lived through the horror and recorded his experiences informally. This book, then, is a recreation by Ramati of Roman Mirga's written notes. Despite initial awkwardness in portraying the Mirga family, the horrifying story of their flight from a comfortable life in Warsaw to their ultimate imprisonment is electrifying.

Directed by Alexander Ramati. With Horst Buchholz, Didi Ramati, Piotr Polk, Maya Ramati. Title: And the Violins Stopped Playing (1988). This is the true story about a group of Romani's (gypsy) in occupied Poland during World War II as they confront the atrocities and tragedies of a forgotten holocaust.

A hard-hitting film which uses the violin music to humanise those suffering persecution, and one which tells a story which is easy to forget, one of a community of outsiders who were considered replaceable.

"I escaped from the ghetto!" "Ghetto! What were you doing there?" "There are plenty of Gypsies in the Warsaw ghetto. They are all wearing the 'Z' sign for 'Zigeuner' instead of']' for ']ude' ... You must run. Take your family and run!" In Warsaw in 1942 Roman Mirga and his father and mother are living as Bareforytka Roma, big-town Gypsies, and working as a music trio in a night club favoured by German officers. But when this dramatic warning comes, from a cousin who has just escaped from the Germans, their hard-won way of life has to change fundamentally. They rejoin their kumpania of the Lowland Gypsies in Brest Litovsk. Perhaps back in the bosom of the tribe, and travelling, they will be safe. But the kumpania, and their leader the Shero Rom, do not see the danger, not even when the local German commandant offers them free housing in the old ghetto vacated by Jews who have been 'resettled'. After all, the Gypsies are Aryans too, as the Germans themselves tell. Events, however, suddenly move fast and dramatically, and a remarkable odyssey begins in which the Gypsies, now under a new Shero Rom, travel first in their carts, then on horseback and fmally by foot, facing hardship and hunger, hatred and destruction all along their route. Yet it is when they believe they have found security again in the Gypsies' traditional way of life that their moment of greatest danger arrives. Alexander Ramati's evocative story of the little-known Gypsy holocaust portrays the life and customs of the Lowland Gypsies with the love born of knowledge. But above all it is a story from World War II, powerfully brought to light and life, based closely on suppressed and refuted, hardly-known historical facts. AND THE VIOLINS STOPPED PLAYING is horrifying, tragic, and as unforgettable as it is moving - a story of man's inhumanity to men who are different, and the heroism of endurance that, despite it, can survive both in individuals and in nations.

The amazing story of Roman Mirga, a Polish gypsy who survived Auschwitz & WWII who knew the experience of Gypsys at the hands of the Nazis needed to be told. Once I started reading the book I couldn't put it down. Written from Roman's own diary, his experience & that of his family's 'clan/tribe' (the kumpania) was fascinating but ultimately a little distressing knowing the eventual fate of all those sent to the death camps (& the history of the Holocaust in general), even though my heart was barracking for a different outcome. There is also an interesting connection to an infamous nazi & through this the reader is able to learn more about what was also going on in the camp & the attitudes of the SS/Nazi regime. Roman's survival is particularly remarkable and his story is as riveting as it is sad with the exception being that miracles can (& do) still occur even in the midst of war, murder, mayhem & genocide. The book was littered with examples of the way of life for Polish (Lowland - Brest Litovsk) Gypsys & their belief systems. This was especially evident in their connection to & respect for nature, including their extensive knowledge of the seasons & how to live off the land. This offered great insight to a culture where few live in large Kumpania's anymore, with their beloved horses in caravans, like in the 'old way' these days, compared to how they were in Europe prior to the arrival of the Nazis. The full cost of what was lost to the Gypsy culture in terms of traditions & knowledge, language & trade/artistic skills etc, may never fully be known other than what was lost personally in each family group. That alone is a good enough reason to read this book (to capture it) however, I'd recommend it as a gteat read that isn't as depressing as you'd think. It left me contemplating my own lucky circumstances (thus far) for long after I finished ...

A sad but compelling story that we should never forget - World War II atrocities.

An easy read about some horrible times. I'd heard about this book and was very very glad to have found it. A gripping first person account of heartbreaking experiences.

i loved the book so much, i looked to see if the author actually made the movie about it that the coverjacket he talked about.
i found that the movie WAS made- and it was almost as amazing as the book!

This true life story of what happened to the gypies in Eastern Europe during the Holocaust of WW2, brings the past alive. And the world needs to know what happened, so that it will not be repeated!

Very touching and interesting.

This book was an exceptionally good read, I was drawn into it for the longest time! It is well written and I would definitely recommend it. The story is so touching and sad, especially because the occurrences are true.
As great a book as I remember.
