Lalore Sinti
   Literally "dumb Gypsies." The name given by the Sinti Gypsies of Germany to all those in the country who did not speak their dialect. During the Nazi period, the Lalore Sinti were classed as German Gypsies because it was said they had lived among Germans in Bohemia and Moravia. However, this did not save them from the concentration camps.
