10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Joanna Daneman #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 14, 2001
Format: Paperback
Jan Yoors was the son of a Flemish stained glass artist. At a young age he ran away with a troupe of Gypsies (more properly, the Rom) who were camping in his Belgian home town. Yoor's parents amazingly accepted his new double life, as Yoors lived on and off with the Rom for many years. His life with his Rom family is covered in his first book "The Gypsies." (which is another must-read.)
"The Gypsies" ends as WWII sweeps over Europe and catches the Rom in its poisoned grasp. Yoors then became an agent of La Resistance, and this book tells, in spare language and deep feeling, what happened to Yoors and his adopted family of Rom. Some of it was so horrific that Yoors can only allude to the events, and his emotions are so deep that we only learn a tiny bit of what must have happened to many of his beloved Rom family. The insight into the deep dedication of the Resistance leaders and fighters is unique.
Do read this book. It is so utterly wonderful that I pass copies of it out to many friends.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was in very good condition, and arrived very quickly. I could tell that while in the owner's pocession it was very well-cared for; all the pages were there, and I haven't once seen markings of any kind (except for perhaps two words on the first page, and those were written in neat cursive).
