The world witnessed a catastrophic event between 1975 and 1979, which many would call the Cambodian Genocide. During the four years of the genocide, the Khmer Rouge regime will be responsible for an estimated two million deaths. Events such as the Vietnam War and authoritarian rule in Cambodia gave rise to Pol Pot. The main culprit, Pol Pot will be responsible for carrying out the Cambodian Genocide. While conducting the Cambodian Genocide, the Khmer Rouge, led by Pol Pot, violated many human rights in accordance with the International Bill of Human Rights.
The Armenian Genocide caused generations of pain and loss of the rich heritage of the Armenians. Not only did the genocide cause major human losses, but also caused a major psychological and moral blow at the attempt to exterminate the Armenian nation from the root. The Armenian Genocide resulted with around 1.5 million Armenians massacred, with only around half a million surviving the genocide. The loss of family, friends and the Armenian community, the genocide had a staggering blow on the Armenian race. The survivors escaped with merely their lives and the horrid memories of the cruel and inhumane nature of the Young Turks.
"I see ... a pile of skulls and bones. For the first time since my arrival, what I see before me is too painful, and I break down completely. These are my relatives, friends, and neighbors, I keep thinking ... It is a long time before I am calm again. And then I am able, with my bare hands, to rearrange the skulls and bones so that they are not scattered about.
The True Impact of the Cambodian Genocide The Cambodian Genocide was a tragic event that took place in 1975 and lasted until about 1979. The genocide was led by Pol Pot and the communist party Kampuchea, also knowns as the Khmer Rouge. Millions of people were killed during this catastrophe. The Khmer Rouge was are the regime that controlled Cambodia from 1975 to 1979.
Introduction The Cambodian Genocide is one of the least known, yet most tragic and deadly genocides that happened in the 20th century. With the aim to restore the glory of pre-colonial times, which was to be achieved by purifying the Cambodian population, from 1975 to 1979 the Khmer Rouge regime killed between two and three million of the 8 million population (Kissi, 2004). The victims of the regime were the Vietnamese minority, which was completely swept out of the country by deportations or mass killing, the Cham Muslims and Buddhists, who were either completely transformed or massacred, and half of the half million large Chinese community, which was either worked to death or deported (Kissi, 2004).
During the early 20th century, a series of events in the Middle East culminated in the mass killing of an estimated 1.5 million Armenians by the Turks of the Ottoman Empire. This event is now referred to as the Armenian Genocide. While many countries and international organizations recognize the killing of the Armenians by the Turks as genocide, there is still much denial and dispute that the Armenian Genocide even happened, particularly on the part of Turkey. Even though it happened one hundred years ago, the consequences of the Genocide and its acceptance or denial can still be seen today, in international relations, political alliances, and modern-day tensions. Although it is impossible to hide what happened in 1915, the Armenian Genocide
The Armenian Genocide was the first genocide of the 20th century. Yet, with over a million and half lives to be accounted for, this genocide has little to no recognition. For the past three centuries , the Armenians have inhabited the Caucasus region of Eurasia . During the 15th century it was absorbed into the Ottoman empire . The Ottoman rulers were Muslims along with most of their subjects .
The history of imperialism is oft held as one of the murkier chapters in the histories of the western world particularly in the decades since its fall. The stories of the tragedies that occurred in countries under the yoke of imperial powers go often untold, however they are there if you look and they provide a look into the past at those who suffered. Nguyen Thuong Hien’s tale is one such of these tales. It tells of violent imperial past of the nation of Vietnam in the opening years of the 20th century. Hien tells of the brutal oppressions that began as the French took control through religion, trade, and finally war.
Imagine all your human right’s strip away from you within a second. Throughout history governments have denied human right to a certain group of people by adopting new polices and/or violence. A government using violence against it people to get them to agree or even do what they want is still seen today. Throughout history countries like Cambodia and Rwanda are places where the government look away their people’s human rights.
The purpose of this letter is to inform you throughly about the significance of the eight stages of genocide. When recognising the importance of the eight stages of genocide, future atrocities, to the degree of the Holocaust, can be anticipated and prevented. To introduce myself, I come from the prestigious Munich International School. Throughout my academic studies, I acquainted myself with the subject of genocide. I have read several first hand accounts where the eight stages of genocide were not utilised to anticipate the order of events in the massacre, leading to a variety of iniquities.
Often revolutions in history portray ruling powers being forcibly removed by a group intent on a new power structure setting up an "improved" system. France's Reign of Terror and China's Cultural Revolution were harsh responses to similar conditions resulting in political, economic, and social changes in those societies. Both revolutions were led by powerful, ruthless leaders and shared important similarities as well as distinct differences in their leadership style. During the French Revolution, Maximillian Robespierre was a leader during the period known as the Reign of Terror. Robespierre initially preached the ideals of equality, liberty, and fraternity he ultimately utilized violence in an effort to control the French citizens.
Throughout the time line of history nations, regions, and specific groups of people have witnessed persecution, oppression, and the destruction of their homeland. These series of events can be classified as a genocide which is the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation. Those who commit these acts have violated the Humanitarian Law in which they want to obliterate a culture because of their political views, economic views, social views, or religious views. Two genocides which have changed the history of a culture are the Armenian and Cambodian Genocides. Both genocides were carried out by the government however in some cases the ordinary people of the country joined in to punish
The Armenian Genocide, also known as the Armenian Holocaust, the Great Calamity, and the Armenian Massacre, was the organized killing of nearly 1.5 million Armenians.

Aurora Mardiganian was the daughter of a poor Armenian Family. She witnessed the deaths of her family members and she was forced to walk over 1,400 miles when she was deported from her home into a concentration camps.
