In the mid-1800s, Ireland was a nation which depended on agriculture. The Irish were among the poorest people in the world, relying on crops to feed their families. The Great Famine, or An Gorta Mór, commenced with the potato failure in 1845. It lasted for six years and caused the deaths of over one million men, women and children. It also led to a huge increase in emigration with two million people fleeing the country in the search of both food and a life free from corruption.
They highlighted that the Rwanda Patriotic front(RFP) had the support of international community and they threatened to overthrow the Hutu regime. This led to the genocide. Approximately ¾ of the Rwanda domestic Tutsi population were killed in 100 days. The Tutsi rebels defeated the Hutu and gained power, but their population was devastated. The author mentions five characteristic common in all genocides.
Genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction of an ethnic, racial, religious or national group that has brought many losses for human population through the whole history of the world. First cases of genocide had such reasons as territorial, competing and religious arguments. For instance, one of the first genocides is thought to be the Roman destruction of Carthage in 146 BCE that occurred due to religious reason and the competitiveness of these two superpowers. The history has seen many cases of genocide, but this social problem especially spread worldwide during the twentieth century which was even claimed to be the “century of genocide”.
The Holocaust vs the Armenian genocide What do the death of over six million Jews and the death of over one and a half million Armenians have in common? Genocide. Genocide is one of the ultimate crimes in modern society and in humanity. While all genocides are horrible events in history they do have some distinct differences from one to another. Genocides tear apart families, ethnicities, and countries while they are are happening and for many years to come.
As a result to all the attacks, there were thousands of dead bodies scattered across the land and tossed into wells. The bodies tossed into the wells led to the contamination of a majority of Darfur’s water supple and desertification of the area. Access to water is highly needed in Sudan currently, but the country has already became neglected. Due to the ongoing violence, rape has also been seen as a weapon to attack the women and children. There has also been numerous reports of girls under the age of ten to women over seventy being raped by attackers.
We should remember those whose lives and cultures have been destroyed by genocide. A good example of genocide would be the Rwandan genocide. The Rwandan genocide is one of the heaviest moments in human history. An airplane crash in 1994 carrying the presidents of Rwanda and Burundi
The United Nations has taken a pledge to aid any country where a genocide or acts of genocide are occuring. In Rwanda’s current state, approximately 170,000 people have perished, innocent men women and children, by the hands of the Hutu rebel group. At this rate, in another 140 days, the entire Tutsi population will be eliminated. This ongoing rivalry has led the two groups to blame each other for every dilemma that has occured in Rwanda. This rivalry climaxed on April 6th when the Hutu president, Juvenal Habyarimana died in a plane crash, and the Hutus blamed the Tutsi Rebel Group (the RPF) for his death.
World War II is said to be the worst conflict in human history. About fifty to eighty million people died all together. There were concentration camps run by the Germans and there were essentially two wars raging. The two wars were the war in Europe and the war in the Pacific, which was Japan against the United States. World War II went on for six years and would destroy more land and property around the world and kill more people than any other war before.
Which drained economic and human lives of countries and ended with a huge change in the leading world powers. However, the world power shift was the greatest outcomes of the War .The 2 main superpowers after this war was America and Union of Soviet Socialists Republic. I believe that the war was a total waste since People all over the world suffered through this war. Hundreds of thousands of people died.
Genocide is the event of the mass murder a group of people: political, religious, racial or ethnic group. The Event of Genocide has occurred several times in the history of the world and is occurring today as we speak such as in Sudan in and the rwandan genocide both taking place in africa. In sudan there is a Genocide currently taking place between rebel groups and government-backed militias led to as many as two hundred thousand deaths, and the dislocation of over 2 million refugees. The book Night is a novel by Elie Wiesel about his experience with his father in the Nazi concentration camps at Auschwitz and Buchenwald in 1944–1945, at the peak of the Holocaust toward the end of the Second World War. The Holocaust is one of the devastating
By ravaging the countryside, the famine not only destroyed millions of innocent human beings-estimates range from 4 to 10 million-but also retarded by generations the natural evolution of Ukrainian nationhood. The traditional Ukrainian values of hope, individualism, and hard work disappeared. Fear, apathy, and alcoholism became the hallmarks of the collective farm. Cities of Ukraine remained bastions of Russification. In general, the traumatized survivors found themselves voiceless cogs in the huge bureaucratic machine that the Soviet union had become….”(Document

As a senior, I chose to take composition two at Countryside High School in my last semester. I previously finished composition one and looked forward to enhance my comprehension of shorty stories and poems in composition two. I also wanted to receive dual enrollment credit for ENC1102 for my future education. Mr. Leo, my professor, taught the class in depth information on short stories by discussing the theme and symbols of the writings however, one short story in particular stood out to me that I will profoundly remember for years to come. Five years from now, I know I will remember the short story “A Jury of Her Peers” by Susan Glaspell due to its meaningful symbolization and the overall irony.
