Book Description

13 Sep 2013
Ruth Barnett escaped the Nazi plans to exterminate Jews and Gypsies by coming to England on the Kindertransport at age four. In her childhood in rural England, Ruth knew Gypsies as respected and welcomed itinerant agricultural and craft workers. Today, although as illegal as anti-Semitism and Islamophobia, the last bastion of culturally acceptable racism is against Roma and Traveller Gypsies. In this book Ruth aims to challenge the stereotypes and myths behind this racism. She says “I have no right to protest against anti-Semitism unless I also protest at other peoples being targeted through prejudice and hatred”. "It takes special courage to stand up for those who society maligns the most and Ruth encourages each person to find the inner courage to do so." Shauna Leven, Executive Director of René Cassin "If only there had been a book like Ruth Barnett’s when I was at school …. we would have seen how eerily similar some modern people’s attitudes towards Romani people, and other ethnic nomads like Irish Travellers, are to those held by the Nazis." Damian Le Bas, Editor, Travellers' Times

5.0 out of 5 stars A little gem of a book! 27 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is both informative and extremely enlightening on a subject that should definitely be covered in all schools. Very interesting to read about the prejudice against both these minority groups.
