The holocaust and the nigerian genocide were both bad genocides.The Holocaust and the Nigerian genocide both involved a lot of hatred, but how the victims were treated, the areas of the world that were impacted, and the goals of the perpetrators were different.
The Holocaust was a mass murder of Jews and other “unequal” groups which were targeted by a man named Adolf Hitler. The Syrian refugees are fleeing from their homes due to civil war. These two events are both important to learn from so that we can learn from them and prevent them in the future. Both are very similar and very different, and we should know all of the similarities and differences to avoid events like these from happening again.
For instance, one difference is where they took place. The Holocaust was mostly in Europe and the Rwandan genocide was in Africa (Rwanda). The fact that they were so far away from each other proves that genocides can happen anywhere. Some just because one person doesn't like a group (Hitler in reference to the Holocaust). Both groups took their “victims” by surprise per-say. If either had known what was coming they could've gotten help sooner. No
D). In Document A “study the problem of genocide and to prepare a report on the possibilities of declaring genocide an international crime.” Although this would have been a great action to protect civilians value during the Nazi crimes, which were inhumane. However, due to the “lack of adequate provisions and previous formulation of international law, the Nuremberg Tribunal had to dismiss the Nazi crimes,” (Doc. A). The international government have not payed attention to serious issues concerning their people. Genocide is a fatal issue that has roamed humanity since biblical times. How can we put our trust in governments that are confused about the
How many people really die in a genocide? The answer, millions. The Holocaust, Rwandan Genocide, and Armenian Genocide are among the many genocides which have killed a countless number of people. The Holocaust, one of the biggest genocides in the world killed around 5,900,000 to 11,000,000. The Rwandan Genocide killed from 500,000 to 1,000,000 people, while the Armenian Genocide killed 800,000 to 180,000. Genocides, the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular group or nation, has affected various countries.
“Genocide is not war! It is more dangerous than war!” Raphael Lemkin once proclaimed. Both an event in Rwanda and the Holocaust were genocides. A genocide is the mass murder of a group of people especially those of a certain race or religion. There have been quite a few different genocides, in many different countries, and sometimes there are different reasons that caused them too. The Rwandan genocide and the Holocaust are an example of two genocides that were alike in some ways, but different in many. In fact, they were more different than similar.
I believe that many Holocaust survivors felt like justice was not achieved because hatred still exists today and people have not really recognized the same impact that the Holocaust inflicted, among some other reasons. Sadly, jokes are made about the Holocaust and people do not take it seriously. The impact the Holocaust had on the world was extremely profound. It nearly wiped out an the entire population of a race. I believe the reason that people cannot understand the Holocaust's effect on the world is because we are simply told numbers. 6 million Jewish citizens were killed. To put that in perspective, about 6 million people live in El Salvador. More people were killed in the Holocaust than the population of New Zealand, Denmark, or Finland. Another reason is because many of the people following Hitler did not pay a price for their actions.
The UN Secretariat is the United Nations’ bureaucratic arm. One of its responsibility is to convey important information to decision-making bodies such as the Security Council, which is responsible for “the maintenance of international peace and security” (UN Charter 5(23)). The Secretariat and the Secretary General were vehemently criticised in their failure to convey the information before and during the Rwandan genocide. Belgium, UN, France and the US showed scant respect for the international law and order and in order to protect their vested interest allowed the genocide to happen. The Genocide Convention of 1948 talks of the legal obligations which these states have clearly failed to follow. Yet, almost two decades have passed by and there is still no sign of any concrete action to be taken against any of the countries who clearly acted in their own vested interest and breached the international
During WWII and the Holocaust the victims, being the Jews or anybody else that was not perceived to be part of the Aryans, or the Master Race, were subjected to suffering and pain that is so gruesome that it is difficult to comprehend unless you were actually present during the events. The victims deserve justice and the people responsible deserve to be punished. Many of the victims perhaps desire revenge, however, a strict punishment or embarrassment could cause future conflict and aggression. The Treaty of Versailles shows this in action. WWII was a continuation of WWI because of how Germany was destroyed by the strict terms in the treaty so a less provoking form of punishment should be found.
situations that are way more important. On the other hand, if this situation is left undone, people
"I was a body. Perhaps less than that even: a starved stomach. The stomach alone was aware of the passage of time." (Wiesel 50) This was a quote from a Holocaust survivor, Ellie Wiesel. He published a book many years later, to tell his side of the story. The Holocaust was an extermination plan for the Jewish faith and its followers. The Holocaust was under the control of a Nazi leader, Adolf Hitler. Hitler was an anti-Semite, meaning he not only had hatred towards the Jews but he showed it as well. As of today, the Holocaust genocide by far, was the most horrifying event for the Jews as well as the nation. The Holocaust killed many innocent lives ranging from infants to the elderly. Nevertheless the Holocaust was the top killing genocide, there
Considering Sztybel 's comparison between the holocaust and the oppression of animals and Stern 's argument against the comparison of cattle and the holocaust, I would say that both have their truths and neither of them are wrong.
The Holocaust was an event that everyone knows was a terrible event in world history. To better
War and genocide have historically been closely related and even described as Siamese twins. Genocide can occur without war but war cannot occur without some elements of genocide as the distinction between legitimate war and genocide is not clear. War is defined as an armed conflict between different nations or groups within a nation. Scholars who have studied the relationship between war and genocide have argued that they are one in the same. It is a very convincing argument especially when examining the UN Convention on genocide. The UN Convention defines genocide as “any of the follow acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial, or religious group” (Jones 13). The wordings of the definition can
This view is far from truth in view of the developed and changed character of international law today. It is incorrect to say that international legal system is without a court to decide international disputes. The establishment of the permanent court of international justice has rightly been reckoned as a landmark for the development of international law because though in international legal system was provided with judicial organ to resolve international disputes on the basis of judicial decisions. The greatest proof of its utility and importance is the fact that its successor, the international court of justice is based on the statute of the permanent court of international justice. It is true that the decision of international court of justice is not equivalent to that the municipal courts. Nevertheless the decisions of the court posses binding force and can be enforced under certain circumstances. They are binding upon the parties to the dispute and only in respect of that dispute. The provision to this effect is contained in article 59 of the statue of the international court of justice. Besides this article 94 of the U.N charter provides that each member of the U.N undertakes to comply with the decision of the
