Germany offers help to Roma people

Berlin, where killings of Roma people was planned during World War II, has become place of refuge for them.

    Hundreds of thousands of Roma people, or Gypsy, were persecuted and killed by the Nazis during World War II.

    But half a century on, the German city where the killings of the Roma people was planned has now become the place where they are offered the hope of a better life.

    One German group in particular is determined to help the Roma, said to be among the most persecuted people in Europe, according to rights group Amnesty International.
