However, the discrimination of the Tutsi who still remained in Rwanda continued. In 1973, the abuse of the Tutsi began again, but this time the military came to join in. Hutu students at the Rwandan school, the National University in Butare were even used to scatter the mistreatment and abuse of the Tutsi in all schools in Rwanda. Major- General Juvenal Habyarimana used all this violence an excuse to take power and promised national unity.
Pol Pot was born Saloth Sar on May 19, 1925, in Kompong Thom Province, Cambodia. He rose to power leading the Cambodia’s Communist group. The Communists took control of the country in 1975, allowing for little freedom in citizens. In 1979, Pol Pot oversaw the deaths of one to two million people. Pol Pot believed that the “old society” should be executed because the group had hate towards them.
The Rwandan genocide was a mass murder of thousands of Tutsi people by the Hutu people, they were viciously killed and scared out of their country, partly due to the rumor that a Tutsi man ordered the death of the Rwandan President. To begin, from April to July 1994, members of the Hutu ethnic group in the East-Central African nation murdered 800,000 men, women, and children from the Tutsi ethnic group. During this period Hutu civilians were forced by military soldier and police officers to kill their neighbors, friends, and family (“10 facts About the Rwandan Genocide-Borgen”). Radio stations encouraged ordinary civilians to take part in the killings (“10 facts About the Rwandan Genocide-Borgen”).
Camps were set up for former Rwandese soldiers to rearm, these camps were one of the reasons war broke out between Congo and Rwanda in 1996. To this day Rwandese forces are found along the border and continue to attack citizens (Outreach Programme on the Rwanda Genocide and the United Nations). Since then there have been genocide trails for those involved in the mass killings. In conclusion, the European colonisation of Rwanda by Belgium created problems it was unable to solve after the country gained its independence.
Is this really right? Imagine someone knocked and opened the door of a house. These individuals, political authorities, killed all males in the family, while, taking the rest of the family to a place of death and terror: this event lead to over a million Armenian deaths. During the Holocaust, the Germans viewed a variety of different ethnicities as political enemies and ethnically weak. Adolf Hitler became obsessed with the concept of a pure, German, Aryan race while wanting to maintain political control and expand an empire.
In 1962 when Rwanda gained independence (A), the Hutu organised a revolution to overthrow the Tutsi government. When the Hutu government, under President Gregoire Kayibanda , took over, they favoured the Hutu. In 1994 when Juvenal Habyarimana, the ruling Hutu president was killed, the Hutu believed it was the Tutsi, who were trying to get revenge (H). This sparked of the Rwandan Genocide of 1994. The Rwandan Genocide took place between 7th April and 15th July in 1994.
An excellent example of this is the Rwandan genocide that happened in 1994. Although this massacre only went on for one hundred days, the Hutus managed to kill over eight hundred thousand Tutis. If the genocide went on for longer at that rate, over millions of people would have been killed in just a few years. In addition, another genocide happened just twenty years earlier in Cambodia. A communist group called the Khmer Rouge believed that Cambodia was ruled by the educated like doctors, lawyers as well as muslims.
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.
Stalin was the dictator of the Soviet Union. According to Wikipedia Stalin ruled from the 1920s – 1950s. He made Russia into a communist country. Although they both wanted to address corruption in their communities, Peggy and Stalin ruled very differently because of the way they treated their people, and how they made decisions for them.
Instead of treating the Congo as a country or colony, Leopold treated the Congo Free State as his own personal property. At the Berlin Conference of 1884, the colonial superpowers of Europe authorized his claim by giving the Congo Free State to Belgium to improve the lives of the native inhabitants. From the beginning, Leopold ignored these conditions and mutilated and killed many Congolese people. He ran the Congo using the money orientated army, Force Publique for his personal enrichment. He used great sums of the money from this exploitation for public and private construction projects in Belgium during this
Human rights is something really important to people, but Totalitarian leaders broke down this democratic ideal because Totalitarian leaders wanted to be the only leaders ruling. Human rights is something that helps us have an opinion on what we believe is acceptable for every person. Human rights was something that was limited when Hitler and other Totalitarian leaders had power. Document D was written by Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi Chief of propaganda in 1930. “Why do we oppose the Jews?
The LGBTQQ rights movement was started on December 10th, 1924 led by Henry Gerber the grandfather of the Gay Rights Movements.
