Sigøjnernes holocaust... 3 vidneudsagn

Fritz Pedersen, Ib Makwarth, Denmark, 1993

45 min.DK/Documentary

Emilio Kozhikow, Milos Karoli and Franz Josef Czardas have in common that they are Gipsies and that they have survived the extermination camps of the Nazis during World War 2. Quietly and movingly they tell about the incredible sufferings and inhuman conditions. And about bestial executions. But also about will and strength. With many stills from the concentration camps and an example from a short Czech fiction film, the film moves from the personal element into the general one, becomes a requiem on the fate of a whole nation and comments on the conditions of the Gipsies today.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
