The Holocaust, the final solution for Jews, is infamous in history. Robert Dawson's Leaves in a Holocaust Wind is the story of another community that suffered in the Holocaust: the Gypsies. Told by Demeter Fox and Zuzzi, Leaves in a Holocaust Wind follows their journey to freedom in the German occupied territory of Slovakia. From the horrors of slaughter in the woods, the lies of a safe future, the concentration camp of Majdanek and the hiding away in the countryside, Fox and Zuzzi must come to terms with what they have witnessed and find the courage to survive until freedom comes. It is a novel of the playful mind-set and culture of the Romanies in the face of a most brutal regime, and in which most of the major events are based on real incidents.

Robert Dawson became interested in Gypsies at the age of 11. Evicted from education at the age of 14, he became a journalist and crime and police specialist. In 1977, he retrained as a teacher, retiring as a head. Since then he has written full time and is an acknowledged authority on British Romanies.

  • Janine Poole

    This is one of the best books I’ve ever read, hands down!!

  • David Cannon

    Excellent achievement publicising a huge injustice to the Romani people which continues to this day, with murders in several Eastern European countries and prejudice elsewhere.

  • Prof, Thomas Acton, OBE

    An excellent and important book which could help change public consciousness.

  • Nick Jackson

    Absorbing, heart-breaking and gripping from start to finish. The author manages to weave together an incredibly powerful narrative, skilfully drawn from factual events and specialist knowledge of the Romani people.

  • Cara De Silva

    This subject is so neglected that it is deeply gratifying that you have published a book about it that will both enthrall and educate.

  • John Sutcliffe

    This is an important history of the Nazi Holocaust that should be known and hitherto has been neglected.

  • Edward Ramsten

    The book is really worth reading, so much information about the Romani people and their struggle to survive. I’m happy to recommend Leaves in a Holocaust Wind, good for all ages.

  • Samantha Taylor

    Having worked with the Roma in Bulgaria, this is a subject close to my heart. We need to do all we can to highlight the inequality experienced by Roma communities. This book serves as a timely reminder!
