(Title in Romani language: I formacia e rromane identitetaqeri thaj i globalizacia e homiliaqeri pal-o Samudaripen). This essay theorizes the political implications of the Roma's inclusion within a globalized holocaust discourse through an analysis of the permanent exhibition on the extermination of the European Roma located at the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum. Although by providing a documentary account of the Romani genocide the museum may succeed in establishing a more equal standing with the Jewish victims of Nazism, van Baar argues that this advance is predicated on the exclusion of references to discrimination suffered by the Roma in the pre- and post-war periods and thus on the non-articulation of the differences between Romani and Jewish history as well as between the histories of diverse Romani groups in Europe.
