Abstract: The paper discusses the history of the Roma and their language, from the beginnings of migration from India to the present day. It exposes the close relationship between the history of Roma and their language. The author points out that the history of Roma is written by others and not Roma people. So these historians reconstructed, history of this nation, from traces that are left from no Roma people: in city chronicles, judicial acts, decrees, or edict, travelogues and similar documents. Therefore, Roma people are more objects than subject in that kind history of the Roma.
