Roma Holocaust survivor
As a 12-year old boy, Marin Constantin witnessed the full horror of the Holocaust after he was taken from his home in Romania to what he believed was Ukraine. Forced to work in fields, harvesting vegetables for meagre rations, Marin Constantin recounts a time of mass inhumanity and brutality, particularly towards Roma people. Speaking to the Council of Europe, he said that his ordeal, between 1942-1944, haunted him long after he escaped and returned home.
