A member of a large, close-knit Sinti and Roma family, Julia Lentini recounts in her testimony the persecution she and her family experienced at the hands of the Nazis and their collaborators. The lesson’s theme, Deprivation and Perseverance, reflects Julia’s efforts to assert her humanity and spirit in the midst of suffering and deprivation.

My mother said, 'Hold hands; stay together; hold hands, carry the small ones; let’s stick together so we don’t get lost.'
