Mehrere hunderttausend europäische Roma und Sinti wurden unter nationalsozialistischer Herrschaft ermordet. An über 20.000 deutschen Roma und Sinti wurden "rassenbiologische" Untersuchungen durchgeführt. Zwangssterilisation, Inhaftierung und Folter waren die Vorstufe des massenhaften Todes in den Konzentrations- und Vernichtungslagern der Nazis.
Von in Frankfurt am Main lebenden Roma und Sinti wurden: 172 Personen in "Zigeunerlagern" in der Diesel- und Kruppstrasse interniert,
8 Personen zwangssterilisiert,
174 Personen nach Auschwitz deportiert und
mindestens 89 Roma und Sinti dort ermordet.
Ab 1947 waren zwei maßgeblich an "rassenbiologischen Untersuchungen" beteiligte Personen, Robert Ritter und Eva Justin, im Stadtgesundheitsamt Frankfurt am Main in leitender Funktion beschäftigt. Sie wurden für ihre Verbrechen nicht zur Rechenschaft gezogen. Die beiden Namen stehen stellvertretend für diejenigen, die unter dem Deckmantel von Wissenschaft und Forschung oder durch Wegsehen und Schweigen den Völkermord an Roma und Sinti ermöglichten.
In Achtung vor den Opfern, als Erinnerung , Mahnung und Verpflichtung.


[English translation:]
Several hundred thousand European Roma and Sinti were murdered under National Socialist rule. More than 20,000 German
Roma and Sinti were subjected to "racial biology" investigations. Forced sterilization, detention and torture were the precursors of mass death in the Nazi concentration and extermination camps. Of the Roma and Sinti that were living in Frankfurt am Main, 172 persons were interned in "Gypsy camps" on the Dieselstrasse and Kruppstrasse, 8 persons were involuntarily sterilized, 174 persons were deported to Auschwitz, of which and at least 89 Roma and Sinti were murdered there. From 1947, two persons involved in "racial biology", Robert Ritter and Eva Justin, were employed in the city health office in Frankfurt am Main. They were not held accountable for their crimes. The two names are representative of those who, under the cover of science and research, or who through averted gaze and silence, allowed the genocide of Roma and Sinti.

With respect for the victims, this is presented as a remembrance,as an admonition, and as an obligation.
