Rwandan Genocide Genocide is still a major problem in our world today. Genocide is the mass murder of one group of people by another group of people. The genocide in Rwanda, Africa was one of the worst cases in African history. The genocide in Rwanda, Africa started on April 7th 1994 and ended in July of 1994.There were several causes and many people involved with horrific outcomes in the Rwandan genocide. There were several causes leading to the genocide in Rwanda.
However, there are other factors that go into what make a genocide, well, a genocide. That is the alienation of a specific group of people and the oppression and dehumanization of that same group. These people were greatly impacted by their alienation, facing a lot of oppression, and being dehumanized in both the Cambodian Genocide and the Holocaust in Elie Wiesel 's Night. One of the aspects that go into making a genocide is the influence of alienation of the groups mentioned above. Alienation is when one is segregated
As stated in Outreach programme Rwanda genocide and the United Nation, “Thousands died of waterborne disease and they continued to target civilian populations which caused deaths, injury and harm.” This shows that many people in Rwanda died from diseases and some died from being targeted during the genocide. This evidence is significant because it shows the population decrease in Rwanda and also shows the negative impact of genocide in Rwanda. This genocide impacted the history of Rwanda and also the people in
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.
There were an estimated 200,000 people who were killed between 1992-1995 in a genocide commited by the Serbs against the Muslims, and Croats in Bosnia. On top of this, another 2 million Bosnians were displaced from their homes and placed in dangerous environments. Three main groups fought each other within the country, Bosnian Muslims, Serbs, and also the Croats. This was a horrible and important genocide that killed thousands of people between 1992-1995. Like the Nazi’s cleansing Europe of it’s Jews, the Serbs aim was the ethnic cleansing of any Muslims or Croatian presence in Serbian territory.
The Hutu-Tutsi dichotomy has long been (and still remains) a major source of instability in the Great Lakes Region. More specifically, in Rwanda memories of the 1994 genocide are still visible in contemporary politics. Building on this, this paper explores the role played by ethnicity during the Rwandan genocide. Addressing this question matters if we are to understand how the current Tutsi-led regime of Paul Kagame (in power since the end of the genocide) plays upon the notion of ‘ethnic reconciliation’ to justify his monopoly of power . Therefore, in answering the question, the paper will argue that ethnicity – here intended as a ‘subjective belief in common descent’ allegedly ‘having genetic foundations’ – deserves careful consideration
It is because of the colonies exploitation and classification of the Rwandan people into“an ethnic group” that the conflict seemed to come to a head. It wasn’t until Rwanda got independence in 1962 that this conflict escalated into violence and ultimately genocide. Rwanda’s population is made up of three ethnic groups the majority being Hutus which holds 85% of the populations, Tutsis 14% and the Twa 1%. The conflict of territory exists between the Hutus and the Tutsis whom both
During the Trail of Tears, the American government singled out a particular race, the Native Americans, and forced them to move west of the Mississippi, killing thousands in the process. This has been referred to by many as the American Holocaust. The Trail of Tears, as mentioned above, was the forced removal of the Cherokee nation in 1838. So, who is responsible for forcing them off the land that was rightfully theirs? The parties responsible for guiltily stripping the civilized Cherokee of nation of their possessions and forcing them to bear a 2,200 mile journey that killed an estimate of 4,000 Cherokee people are the Founding Fathers, white settlers, and the white settler 's greed.
One of the many tragic cases of human history is the Rwandan Genocide. It truly presents the corruptness of human nature and how strong one could hate another being. Rwanda is currently still slowly healing from this massive wound that its own people did to it. This grief event impacted other places or organizations other than Rwanda, such as the United Nations. The Rwanda Genocide not only impacted the world externally in causing damage to the country Rwanda, it also impacted the world; the reputation of the United Nations, the relationship between the two major groups of people in Rwanda and the entire perspective of the world for what is possible for humans to do.
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 not only brings a war but also problems like decreasing economic affairs and social problems. When genocide starts, society overlooks economic affairs like their agriculture since they focus on the war. In the case of Rwanda, once the genocide had begun many farmers fled or were killed.
Genocide; the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation has cast a shadow on various societies over the years (Dictionary). Although the general public is aware of the meaning of genocide and how it takes place, many are not aware of its aftermath and how affected societies are built back up to stability. Territories that fall victim to this act of systematic killing are demolished and left in ruins. Rwanda in 1994 is a prime example to use when studying the aftermath of genocide. This is because when an act such as genocide is performed, everyone becomes a victim, even the perpetrators.

The Indian Removal Act of 1830, put into action by President Andrew Jackson, developed many long lasting affects for the Native American tribes. The most significant impact of them all was said to be the Trail of Tears. This remorseless event led to an extravagant number of deaths to the Indians. Along with this deadly removal process, the Removal Act led to poor living conditions for the Native Americans. The Removal Act also forced the Indians to transform into a new culture.
In 1992, the Yugoslav republic of Bosnia declared its independence from Yugoslavia. By 1995 over 100,000 people were killed for being Bosnian Muslim or just Croatian citizens. The Bosnian Serb forces were responsible for the killings. It was worst act of genocide since the killing of six million Jews during World War ll. These terrible acts of killing come from a clash of Serbian separatist and Croatian forces.
