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. This stage was called classification because the Serbians were classifying them of their race and that's what started this horrible genocide. There plan of attack was in five steps, their first step was to urge Serb residents to leave the city while surrounding the town with artillery fire. The second was to execute the leader and intelligence of that town, third was to separate the women, children, and old men from those of fighting age. Then they would send women, children, and also the old men to concentration camps or national borders for the fourth step.
Genocide is the act of mass murdering groups of people because of someone 's disliking. In other words getting rid of people or stop their existence,mostly because of their religion, ethnic, or race.One of the most atrocious ones was the Armenian Genocide(April 24,1915-1916), in which 1.5 million of the Armenian population, living in the Ottoman Empire were either deported or killed.During this time,the Turkish government had planned the genocide to get rid of the entire Armenian population in the Ottoman Empire(which was one of the largest empires to rule on the border of the Mediterranean Sea) because they feared that the Armenian community would join their enemy troops during WWI in 1915. On April 24, the genocide began. The turkish government
During the Armenian Genocide, which lasted from 1915 until 1916, 1.2 million Armenians were brutally murdered. They were murdered in either massacre and individual killings, or from systematic ill-treatment, exposure, and starvation. In the novel Forgotten Fire, the main social issue, the Armenian Genocide, compares to the Holocaust as they both were caused by a hatred of a specific race, they both resulted in extreme violence and immense casualties, and they both had many heroes who made considerable sacrifices on behalf of those being persecuted. The Holocaust and the Armenian Genocide were sparked by the hatred of a specific minority race, the Jews, and the Armenians. The leaders of the countries involved in genocides often promoted them and contribute to the heinous crimes.
The massacre was against the Armenian people of Ottoman Empire during World War I is known by the Armenians and some other countries as the “Armenian Genocide.” They feel that this was masterminded by the government of Young Turks. From what I have learned this was planned by the Turkish government to set out and destroy the Armenian population of the Ottoman Empire and rid of all Armenians. Before the Armenian Genocide was established, some 30 years later, it originally was condemned by the community as a crime against humanity, not a genocide, even though the Armenian people were effectively eliminated from the homeland they had occupied for nearly three thousand
“Who does now remember the Armenians (Adolf Hitler, 1939)?” Who does? When someone hears the word "Genocide", the words killing and death may come to mind.

Similar to the Tsars before him, Stalin caused the death of anyone who opposed his way of ruling, especially the Kulaks. He violated the rights of the people by launching an extensive campaign on deporting ethnic groups that opposed his leadership. Stalin’s years of “great terror” through much unneeded purges caused him to more and more act as a “Red Tsar”. The only difference was Stalin was ruling under Marxist ideologies with communism being the end result as opposed to adherence to the Russian Orthodox Church. However, just like Stalin, Alexander II was very similar in that the secret police was at the centre of dealing with outside issues towards his power.
The Bosnian genocide was the mass killing of Bosnian Muslims starting in 1992. Similar to the holocaust which was the destruction of jews living in german territory the bosnian genocide was the systematic destruction of bosnian muslims living in serbia.

ntroduction and Overview What is genocide? The dictionary definition of genocide, as google states, is, “the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular nation or ethnic group.” in 1944, the UN of Human Rights declared the term “genocide”.

I believe this is called racism, one very prominence distinguisher of ultra-nationalism. Later during the 5-day war between Russia, Georgia and South Ossetia, Georgia also exhibited ultranationalistic behaviors. During this war to try to win back the breakaway provinces of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, Georgia ruthlessly bombed South Ossetia using illegal weapons. This was a display of ultranationalism. This sort of ethnic cleansing and weakening can be seen through all walks of ultranationalistic history, and example being Stalin and the weakening of the Ukrainian anti-authoritarian fervour, through famine.
But due to violence occurring on the site of executions, as reported by Beccaria, Charles Dickens and Karl Marx, executions were moved inside prisons and away from the eyes of the public. But the worse was the period of the 20th century. Countless people were killed in the fighting between nation-states, such the Turkish Genocide of the Armenians, Hitler's attempt to eradicate the Jews, the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia and
By the 1800’s the empire that was then controlled by Sultan Abdul Hamid powers had declined but still took hold of Armenia. By the 1890s Armenian scholars from overseas demanded a constitutional government and an end to discriminatory laws in their homeland. This resulted in a furious Sultan ordering the massacre of 100,000 Amanien villagers. Soon after In July of 1908 Sultans viscous reign came to an end when Turkish Nationalist known as ‘Young Turks’ named Mehmef Talaat, Ismail Enver, and Ahmed Djemal forced the nation into a constitutional government yet seized control themselves and created a dictatorship. There was a sudden rise
The two main factions here are the Reds (the Bolsheviks) and the Whites (Liberals who supported the Provisional government as well as various reactionaries and monarchists who want to reverse the revolution). The Civil War is deadly and destructive and lasts until 1923. Various other groups and countries also fought in this war, some on the side of the Reds, some on the side of the Whites, as well as independent forces, like the anarchists who formed the Black Army in Ukraine which fought alongside the Reds to defeat the Whites before then being turned on and crushed by the
In 1993 the beginning of the genocide of millions of Jewish people began otherwise known as the Holocaust. The Nazis plan to exterminate all Jewish people was referred to as the Final Solution. During this time period the Jewish people were discriminated against by being segregated, stripped of their identities, and being taken away from everything they own and love and forced into concentration camps. Segregation was one form of dehumanization and Jewish people were impacted by this greatly. Shown in Document #4: Discriminatory Decrees Against the Jews.
However, Christian minorities were in a vulnerable position due to the decline of the Ottoman Empire and impending revolutionary violence (Jones 155). In April 1915, the Turkish army launched an assault on the Armenian populations in the city of Van. The Armenians were being depicted as spies for the Russians by propaganda. Mass deportation and massacre occurred with the remaining Armenian population sent out of the of a death march by Kurds. The First World War was the first instance of total war therefore during this conflict it was difficult to distinguish where the war ended and the genocide began.
A genocide is the the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation, the Holocaust and the Cambodian Genocide are examples of this. After the Holocaust, in 1945 the United Nations realized that genocides were a continuously happening. They realized they needed to prevent genocides and global conflict in general. The Holocaust began on January 30, 1933 when Adolf Hitler became chancellor of Germany and ended May 8, 1945 when the war officially ended. During this time 6,000,000 Jews were killed, not by war, but rather at the hands of Germany.
