Abstract
The typology of the Romany cemeteries is that the Romanies are buried at (a) their own Gypsy cemetery that is physically separated from the so-called Serbian one, (b) their own cemetery, the so-called Gypsy cemetery that is physically connected to the so-called Serbian one, (c) the so-called Serbian cemetery together with the other citizens, and (d) some other cemetery outside their place of residence. The people of Donji Komren are not to blame for having a separate Gypsy cemetery since, on one hand, the Romanies were always in recent or - sometimes for centuries -in the far past buried at a separate and from their place of residence distant terrain for at least three reasons: (a) severe segregation and stigmatization of the majority (b) the internal characteristics of their own culture and their culture of death, and (c) turbulent historical events. On the other hand, except for the burials outside their place of residence (type d), the other types of cemeteries (a, b, and c) are utterly legitimate and desirable. The reason for this might be that the first Romany who died in Donji Komren was buried - at some time between the first two world wars - on the northern-western side of a small hill named 'Grobljišta' for inherent reasons peculiar to the Romany culture of death. This might have been a coincidence. Or maybe the reason for this was his stigmatization by the citizens of the village. This can be only guessed at since there is no written evidence. Neither is there reliable memory of the citizens.
