The Roma culture museum
Article published on 10-04-2023
The National Commission of Romania for UNESCO continues to promote activities dedicated to the knowledge and understanding of the specific culture and traditions of ethnic minorities in Romania. Tolerance, respect and coexistence without discrimination cannot be imagined without knowledge and understanding of diversity.
At the end of Roma Week, we are pleased to present you a unique and precious initiative.
Mrs. Delia Grigore, ethnologist, teacher, writer and activist for Roma rights, coordinated and realized together with the "Amare Rromentza" Roma Center Association, whose president she is, the "Virtual Museum of Roma Culture". It was carried out, as a distinct action and result, within the "We can do more together" project.
The Romani culture virtual museum, the only one of this amplitude in the world, is a journey through the cultural memory of the Roma from Romania, at the same time, a library, a cinematheque, an art gallery, but, above all, an invitation to retrace history through the eyes of the Roma culture.
The museum's path crosses eight virtual spaces: the Romano archetype and its roots, the slavery of the Roma in Romanian countries, the beginnings of the Roma movement in the interwar time, the Holocaust of the Roma in Romania and the eugenistic autochthonous ideology, the assimilation of the Roma in the socialist regime, the Roma as a national minority, the anti-Roma racism and the Roma vision for the future.
The Roma culture museum represents the cornerstone of the Roma cultural memory and the keystone of the modern identity’s reconstruction of the reformed ethnotype and of the non-territorial cross-border Roma nation.
