Sweden: Roma compensation for police log compared to Jewish Holocaust

The Swedish Commission on Security and Integrity Protection recently ruled that the state should pay damages to Roma listed on a register kept by the Skåne police.

The Jewish connection?

Fatima Bergendahl, of Roma background, was interviewed on the topic and said as follows: "If you think back on history, how important it was for the Jews to get compensation for what they have been through.  Compensation is acknowledgement."

I assume this wasn't what she was trying to do, but comparing being listed in a register to genocide is Holocaust minimization.  Particularly given the fact that Swedish Jews did not receive compensation for anything.
