Some years back, I was having a conversation on a train with an individual who referred to himself as a Gypsy. He got very worked up about the terms Roma and Sinti saying he associated with neither group and using those terms to refer to Gypsies in a blanket way was very offensive and excluding of other groups.
Might have been Yenish. They're often forgotten, when people talk about gypsies nomadic people. And their treatment by the folks and government sadly is a rather dark (black?) page in Switzerland's history book.
