RAJASTHEN INDIA, LIVED IN PUSHKAR FOR AWHILE, MY OWN BACKYARD, CAMEL RACES

Who Are The Gypsies?

What is known about the Sinti and Roma is that they arrived in Germany in the late 1400’s after a series of migrations which brought them from Northern India Punjab States.., through Persia, Asia Minor and Greece, the Balkan and Slavic States, to Austria and Germany.

Along the way, they converted to Christianity. Also, along the way, they acquired a wide range of stereotypes including “accomplices to the Crucifixion,” thieves, practitioners of the magic arts, beggars, etc. Their itenerant lifestyles, non-conventional behaviors and mystical image brought them under governmental suspicion from the early Middle Ages on. They were fairly consistently defined as “stateless” wanderers, a threat to the moral order and a burden upon society.
