Although the Saxons arrived in Transylvania, Romania over 800 years ago, they have retained a strong sense of their distinctive identity and still speak German. After the Revolution of 1989, most Saxons left the country. But Rosi and her father have stayed behind, determined to live in harmony with the Romanians and Gypsies who have moved into the formerly Saxon villages.
