In this photo taken Thursday, Sept. 26, 2013, Marcello Demeter stands on the balcony of his apartment in a Stockholm suburb. About a week ago, the 42-year-old Swede found out that he and his wife Susanne, their three children and at least three of their grandchildren were on a secret police register purportedly created to help fight violent crime. The reason? They are Gypsies. The list has triggered an outcry over racial profiling in this nation proud of its traditions of tolerance and social justice - and reminded many of the persecution that Gypsies, or Roma, suffered under the Nazis. Demeter says the police list reminds him of the way the Nazis drew up lists of Roma during World War II. Researchers estimate between 500,000 and 1.5 million Roma were killed alongside the Jews in the Holocaust. (AP Photo/David Mac Dougall) less
