(Title in Roma Language: Maskar 'Holokavstoma', 'Porraimos' aj Samudaripen – sar biandardol jekh nevi selikani mitologia). The article presents the processes of rethinking from nowadays point of view of the Holocaust of the Gypsies during the Second World War. The question is not about the individual rethinking from the Holocaust survivors, but about new type of constructing of the historical memory of the whole community, connected with the processes of it's identity changes in new, ethno-national paradigm. Based on the attempts to create 'new collective memory' several odd cases appear in the 'secondary' edition of the historical memory of the Holocaust in different countries of Eastern Europe. Parallel with this we are witnessing creation of internal division in the borders of the Gypsy community itself in terms how different layers of Gypsy communities estimate the history of the Holocaust.
