The genocide against the Sinti and Roma was inspired by the same motive of racial fanaticism and the same wilful intention to exterminate them systematically, once and for all, as that which underlay the extermination of the Jews. Everywhere in the National Socialists’ sphere of influence, they were systematically murdered family by family, from the very youngest to the very old.

Roman Herzog, then President of the German Federal Republic, on 16 March 1997
