When they first encountered Gypsies, Europe is recorded as having an open-heart. That did not last and the story of Gypsy persecution continues today. After being accused of fraudulent activity, the Gypsies were no longer welcome in Europe and driven to wander. And wander they did. Throughout the world. By the 1700s, every European country had laws against them. Eventually, most modern European laws against the Gypsies were repealed. But not by Nazi Germany. They took their distaste for the Gypsies to the extreme. They put them in labor camps, sterilized them and even exterminated them.
