Abstract

The author tries in this article to describe the evolution of the definition "Gypsy" in juridical rules of Czechoslovak republic and Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia. Juridical rules pre and post war keep consistently writing of definition "gypsy" with little type, juridical rules from the period of the Protectorate use the definition of "Gypsy" with capitals. Foremost the list from August 2 1942 segregated from the group of "gypsies" a smaller group of "Gypsies", where only ethnic Romanies came under. In the decree of preventive abatement of delinquency from March 1942 is the definition of "gypsy" a synonym to the definition "asocial". Himmler's issue from December 1942 about deportations of Romanies to Auschwitz represents a new change in definition of "Gypsy". Issuing of this decree meant fact, that certain ethnic group is completely asocial.
