A1 Settlements

At the beginning of the 20th century, the overwhelming majority of the European Roma and Sinti were leading a settled life. When this photo was taken, the Roma village of Stegersbach was home to more than 200 people, and in the Austrian province of Burgenland more than 8,000 Roma and Sinti lived in 130 hamlets and settlements like this one - until 1938.
