About the Movie

A People Uncounted tells the story of the Roma, commonly referred to as Gypsies, a people who have been both romanticized and vilified in popular culture. The Roma have endured centuries of intolerance and persecution in Europe, most notably the Holocaust genocide where an estimated 500,000 were murdered. A People Uncounted documents their culturally rich yet often difficult lives, and demonstrates how their present state has been deeply shaped by the tragedies of the past. Filmed in 11 countries and featuring dozens of Roma, including Holocaust survivors, historians, activists and musicians — A People Uncounted brings the Romani history to life through the rich interplay of their poetry, music, and compelling first hand accounts. As ethnic intolerance flares up across Europe, A People Uncounted sheds light on this unique culture while presenting the Roma tale as emblematic of the world’s legacy of racism and genocide.

Disturbing and Illuminating

I saw this film when it was screening in Toronto at the Hot Docs Cinema in Autumn 2013.
I cried within the first 30 seconds.

"A People Uncounted" is a poignant narrative of some of the most hideous atrocities inflicted upon Roma. Little has been documented about the suffering that the Roma themselves endured throughout the Holocaust, for many reasons, which the film discusses. If you need to give someone the "Coles Notes" of Roma history, this is a fantastic, (albeit disturbing), snippet of a vast and complicated history.

This is a must-see for anyone interested in Roma, WWII, the Holocaust or even simply the dark side of humanity.
