Rwanda, April 7 1994. The day that marks the start of a “massacre” that that will last 100 days and end with a death toll of 1,000,000 people. More famously known as “The Rwandan Genocide”, one of the most horrific and ghastly acts of genocides to have happened in recent history. The Hutus planned to exterminate the Tutsis, one of the minority groups in Rwanda. After the 100 day genocide, July 1994, 70% of the Tutsis have unfortunately been exterminated leaving only 30% of the population left.
Throughout the year, many genocides have taken place. A genocide is the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation. One that you may not know much about is Stalin’s Purge in the USSR. Stalin’s purge is often referred to as the Great Purge or the Great Terror. This happened in the 1930’s in the Soviet Union.
These survivors and their families had suffered the aftermaths for many later decades after the end of World War ll and death of Hitler. The army and politicians crush them and exploited them for many decades after seizing the genocide and occupation in 1945. Through these autobiographies we can see that its not only Jews but many other tribes and sects had faced the terror and were killed
The word extinct or exterminate is replaced with genocide when it refers to the intentional or deliberate destruction of a group of people because of nationality, race, or religion. This was the case within Ottoman Empire they would attempt to destroy an entire race over religious beliefs. The Ottoman Empire 's found a solution for social differences within its borders; it came in the form of the removal of the Armenian people. Even though it is deniable, the Armenian genocide is the first incident of its kind, it creates the definition of the word genocide, and it established the stages of all atrocities of this type. The first incident with the Armenian began in 1894 and 1896; this action was referred to as a “box on the ear”.
Tim Walz once said, “You must understand what caused genocide to happen. Or it will happen again.” One of the most famously proclaimed genocides in history is Hitler’s persecution of the Jewish people, but that is not where the killing stops. There have been hundreds of deliberate mass killings just like that throughout history. One of the most horrifying took place in the small country of Cambodia in the late 1900’s. This genocide was marked by its ruthless tyrant and it’s dehumanization factor.
“The Holocaust was the most evil crime ever committed.” – Stephen Ambrose Holocaust is this event, this tragic moment of our history which touched millions of people with the story of masses being killed in the period of more than ten years, from 1933 to 1945, that it became its own phenomenon – genocide (The Holocaust). The Nazi, who thought German were superior over the Jewish people, took away the life of around six million Jews: number almost as large as the Bulgarian population nowadays, if we don’t count the other ethnic groups that were murdered. The survivors were left to deal with the effects of the genocide: the psychological trauma, loss of family members, fear of going home and, of course, political issues. In my research paper
Part two of the Northeast covers the death and destruction those europeans caused with diseases, where 90% of the population died in some instances. Pure greed over their land, with the terrible massacres that happened to the tribes was also covered and how they wore down the Indian’s to not fight. The Southeast covers generally the same tragic situations that took place with the tribes in that region. It also covers the distinction of the farming techniques they acquired along with trading techniques and their cultural relationships among other natives and Europeans. The Southwest covers archeological questions and the deep history with many tribes including the Apacheans who migrated southwards from Canada and Alaska.
The life of the Tutsis during the time turned for the worse after several years of fights that broke out between Rwanda and neighboring countries. After the Rwanda Genocide, the Hutus escaped to the Congo and never came back; the remaining Tutsis started from scraps of the old and had to build a society without the Hutus. The gap/relationship between the two major groups in Rwanda finally cracked and will most probably never be fixed. The actions illustrated in the genocide changed the minds of the young and wise throughout the world, scaring their memories for a period of
