Romani in Olanda / Romanians in the Netherlands

26 Jan

Saptamana asta iar mi-a stat inima in loc. Pentru a nu stiu cata oara. Acum am auzit la stiri ca au fost arestati trei romani pentru unul dintre cele mai grave furturi din ultimii 25 de ani din Olanda si anume din muzeul Kunsthal din Rotterdam s-au furat anul trecut 7 tablouri cu valoare de circa 100 de milioane de euro.

As vrea sa le multumesc romanilor respectivi pentru ca ma fac sa raspund din nou la intrebari precum: “De ce sunt asa de multi infractori romani?” si mai ales: “De ce vin asa de multi infractori romani in Olanda? In Romania nu au ce fura?”. De parca i-as cunoaste pe toti personal si as putea da un raspuns. E de ajuns sa ma lovesc de prejudecati, dar cand sunt cazuri concrete: acordeonisti care nu stiu sa cante de fapt si agaseaza trecatorii cu sunetele emise, skimmeri care intotdeauna sunt romani, iar acum hoti de arta… ce mai pot sa zic? “Da domle, astia sunt conationalii mei. Am un Matisse acasa pe perete, cu banii in general nu stau rau…” De ce m-ar mai crede cineva ca nu cunosc personal nici o persoana de acest gen, ca toti prietenii mei romani sunt absolventi de facultate, ca nu toti romanii sunt asa, ca nu trebuie sa ni se impuna restrictii, cand aici nu se aude nimic bun despre romani?

This week my heart stopped again. As it did many times before. This time I heard on the news that three Romanians were arrested for one of the biggest robberies of the last 25 years in the Netherlands: 7 paintings worth about 100 million euros were stolen last year from the Kunsthal museum in Rotterdam.

I would like to thank those Romanians because, once again, they make me answer questions like: “Why are there so many Romanian criminals?” and especially: “Why do so many Romanian criminals come to the Netherlands? Don’t they have anything they can steal in Romania?”. As if I knew them all personally and I could answer. It’s enough that I have to face preconceptions, but when there are real cases: accordion players who cannot play and annoy the people passing by with the sounds they make, skimmers who are always Romanians and now art thieves… what can I say? “Yeah man, these are my fellow citizens. I have a Matisse hanging on the wall at home and money is not really a problem…” Why would anybody still believe me that I don’t know anybody like that, that all my Romanian friends went to college, that not all Romanians are like this, that there should not be restrictions for Romanians abroad, when nothing good about Romanians is ever heard here?

    Eu am citit azi cum politia romana s-a oferit sa trimita ofiteri vajnici care sa ajute la prinderea hotilor de buzunare, pentru ca sunt prea multi hoti romani (din cei 46 arestati cu ocazia Gay Parade, 43 erau romani). Nu-ti spun ce placere deosebita imi face sa citesc vesti din astea!
    Iar unei prietene care a fost la politie pentru a da o decalaratie in calitate de martor (nu in cazul hotilor de buzunare :D) i s-a spus ca e primul cetatean roman care vine acolo in calitate de martor si nu de acuzat.

      Dana, multumesc pentru reactie, ms bucur ca esti de aceeasi parere ca si mine. Sper sa se rezolve cat mai curand.
