Moreni, Romania, Prewar
About a million Roma (Gypsies) lived in Europe before World War II. The largest Romani community--of about 300,000--was in Romania. This film shows a Romani (Gypsy) community in Moreni, a small town northwest of Bucharest. Many Roma led a nomadic lifestyle and often worked as small traders, craftsmen, merchants, laborers, and muscians.
