  • History of the Roma: Myths and hard realities
    perspective into all key events of the country The Roma have worked in innumerable occupations from soldiers artisans horse traders musicians cobblers blacksmiths to factory workers and farmers Their fortunes have been intertwined with local village communities and the Finnish society more broadly The history of the Roma is one reminder that Finland has actually never been the monoculture which it is often portrayed as In our research we wanted to go beyond romantic and racist preconceptions and to study the centuries long history of interaction Our shared history is so long that all Finns would benefit from knowing something about it Indeed the history of the Roma should be included in school curricula and this teaching should make clear the inadequacy of old stereotypes History makes clear is the Roma are no more cut from the same cloth than are the other Finns There have been identifiable subgroups in different regions with their own customs and characteristics Moreover family histories reveal for example Hungarian Danish and Russian forefathers and mothers as well as occupations such as as a clocksmith a pilot a violin maker or a revolutionary The relationship between the Roma and the other Finns has not been such a battleground as has been commonly thought either The mere fact of survival of the Roma in cold and traditionally poor Finland points to something else than isolation and hostility The Roma held an established position in rural communities and the same Roma families could be given shelter in the same familiar houses from one generation to the next The peasants benefitted from exchange and for the Roma good relationships were a question of life and death The aim of our project was not to write the definitive history of the Roma in Finland Our tight schedule meant that many questions remained unasked and many elderly people with priceless information were not interviewed Our limited aim was to write a multi voiced book also to help the future researchers among whom we hope to see more Roma themselves In the end history writing is just history writing Today s Europe needs to wake up to the fact that it treats its biggest minority as second class citizens Although the situation of the Roma in Finland is relatively good we cannot afford complacency either We need high profile initiatives and concrete resources to achieve real equality With the enlargement of the EU it is also too late to think that the Roma issue concerns only Eastern Europe We need to join forces to put a stop to the centuries long continuum of discrimination Otherwise we in Finland too have to start getting used to the shadow society formed by Europe s displaced Roma struggling for survival on our streets and backyards Miika Tervonen Researcher Centre for Nordic Studies CENS University of Helsinki Back to blog entries Blog The Metropolis2013 blog will publish postings on the organising of the conference fair trade sustainable development and the conference city Tampere There will
