The interview with historian Anna Jurová was conducted by Daniela Hivešová-Šilanová and was recorded for the purposes of the article "Illegally Built Romani Settlements?" Another Disinformation in the Slovak Media! In Romano nevo ľil, year 11, no. 509(455)-517(463) (2001), p. 17.
In the second part of the interview Dr. Jurová, from a historical point of view, speaks about the life of Roma in the territory of Slovakia during the wartime Slovak state, when various anti-Roma decrees were issued that denied them the rights, limited their free movement, travel, and work. On April 20, 1941, a decree of the Ministry of the Interior was adopted on the eviction of Roma from the villages to a remote place designated by the village, which was later repeated in 1943, signed by the Minister of the Interior Mach. Work and concentration camps were established, the number of people imprisoned was defined by the municipalities themselves.
