A poignant poem written by a 10-year-old Traveller describing the persecution of Gypsies throughout history

"But people hated them, from far and near;
‘Don’t worry’ said one man, ‘I am here‘
I will build gas chambers so high in the sky,
Where thousands of them will surely die
I rid this world of man, woman and child,
Not one of this race will be left behind.’
But God was good, he saved a few,
And sent them out to spread a seed or two
In no time at all, the world was full,
With beautiful Gypsies tall and small
Their laughter and music was heard all over the land
This upset people, so began
their new plan
To get rid of travellers and Gypsies too
‘Let’s call up the council to see what they can do!’"
