Dalon Van Amerongen 5th Hour I. Introduction Everyone has heard of genocide but what they do not know is where it can happen B. The Hutus had killed large numbers of Tutsis. C. In 1972 the Tutsis had killed around 250,000 Hutus in Burundi D. Rwanda's president at the time the fighting started was elected from a military group.
In 1994, a small country known as Rwanda, located in Africa, was devastated by a mass genocide over a short span of time. This tragedy between the Hutus and the Tutsis occurred over a span of 100 days and had 800 000 to 1 000 000 fatalities. Although small in comparison to other genocides such as the holocaust, the damage, emotionally and physically, was certain. The two populations, the Hutus and the Tutsis had major conflict in previous years, this eventually built up, thus resulting in the Hutu people to enforce mass murder on the Tutsis. Over the years there is and was great controversy as to what the main motivation of the Hutu people was to start the genocide.
The bosnian genocide started on july 13, 1995 and lasted 2 decades until the crimes were punished. The bosnian genocide took 1 million lives all over the Bosnian war. The bosnian war was fought because
For instance people in a country controlled by genocide are scared to take action because they think they would be targeted. Before the genocide, there were 7 million people in Rwanda divided into three different ethnical groups. The three groups are the Hutus, Tutsis, and Twas. After the genocide the population decreased to 1.4 million people. 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 rebellion was caused by the oppression of the Herero people, who reacted to this by starting a revolt against the German leaders. They began by killing people and setting buildings on fire causing Germans to flee to other cities for protection. The violence lasted for about a week but was shut down when the government violently cut down the resistant. In fleeing, “the Herero people were scattered and many of them died of starvation and thirst as they fled through the Omaheke desert,” and “about 12 000 of the remaining Herero were forced to surrender and were placed in concentration camps where medical experiments as well as daily executions took place” (“Herero Revolt 1904-1907”). This event alone caused the death of 80% of the Herero people in Namibia (“Herero Revolt
The Rwanda incident is when Rwanda’s president was killed when his plane got shot down, and soon after that incident a civil war started. The Darfur genocide has resulted in 400,000 people who met their demise, which shows how frightening and serious this crisis is. West Sudan’s Darfur region problems from 2003 are the big reason why there is genocide in Darfur. “The conflict in west Sudan 's Darfur region flared in 2003 when two rebel groups rose up against the government, accusing it of wilful neglect” (At a Glance). Genres of literature can be used as educational tools to tell the people that their is a big problem, which is involving dystopian societies and development toward equal
On May 30 1967 Lieutenant Colonel Odumegwu Ojukwu established the Republic of Biafra. It was a group all of the Igbos that wanted to fight back. The Republic of Biafra and the Nigerian government declared war on eachother. In 1967 the Nigerian government set out to kill all the Christians, this forced tons of Igbos that they could find. They killed and beat all of
The Rwandan Genocide “Even for a country with such a turbulent history as Rwanda, the scale and speed of the slaughter left its people reeling” (Rwanda: How the genocide happened). This quote from BBC News perfectly describes the inhumanities that occurred during the 100 day span known as the Rwandan Genocide. The Rwandan Genocide is one of the most recent genocides in history, occurring in 1994 from April to July. This genocide was caused by growing ethnic segregation between two groups that resulted in brutal murderings and a question that is asked to this day: Why didn’t the UN or any other major power step in to help stop these atrocities?
In Sudan, a country in north Africa, a civil war broke out. About 20,000 people fled from from Sudan to escape death or industion into the army. The people fleeing Sudan had to walk 1,000 miles to Ethopia. The treacherous journey exposed them to dehydration, hunger, exhaustion, and attacks from wild animals. More than half of them died, but many survived.
There were many prison camps used during the Civil War and they were all terrible. The prison camps during the Civil War helped claim the lives of thousands of the deaths from the Civil War, and most people don’t know how much of an impact the prison camps had on the total number of deaths throughout the Civil War. They killed thousands of soldiers on both sides, making an impact on each side’s soldier count, and adding another fear to the soldier’s head. The prison camps used during the Civil War killed as many as 56,000
The Holocaust was the biggest and most world known genocide that has ever happened in the world, matter of fact it is the only one that schools really seem to care and want to inform their students mostly about. But the remaining question that has been brought up throughout years is if the Holocaust should take a seat and teachers explore other genocides with their students to bring attention to newer worse causes. Other examples of genocide around the world that aren’t talked about are Darfur in 2003, and Bosnia in 1995. 2003 in Darfur over a decade ago the government of Sudan carried out the rage of genocide against Darfuri civilians, killing 300,000 and displacing over 2 million people. The ongoing affair in Darfur, forces
Constant exposure to death and disease took their toll, as well. Disease would spread deadly and fast due to poor sanitation and the close quarters soldiers were put in. For example, there were over 1,300,000 cases of diarrhea among Civil War soldiers, and 34,000 of those cases ended in death. In addition to that, surgeries and amputations were responsible for a great deal of death as well, with over 20,000 soldiers dying post-surgery (Civil War 150 Interactive). Much of the death was a result of the fact that surgeons were not knowledgeable on subjects like hygiene or how bacteria spreads.
Many tribes were affected by this act but the major tribes affected are cherokee, chickasaw, creek,seminole,choctaw these tribes were most damaged as also the most civilized. They knew their own language and had many of their own invention to their way of life. When the Europeans came to native homelands they brought deadly diseases and that brought many deaths just about 3,000 Choctaw died and many more tribes suffered but in 18 38 the cherokee were forced out of their homeland and joined the march of tears. On there way over 4,000 were killed or died this brought native populations down 98 % of native americans died during the trial the government was trying to get as many tribes as they could to sign treaties. Chief black hawk leader of the fox and sauk tribes was a victim of the government 's “persuasive” tactics meaning they tortured and abused the natives to get them to sign treaties but some florida indians fought back for several years but the U.S. had power, weapons and numbers.
Burned, purged, killed, and raped, this was just the beginning for the people that were indigenous to the lands in which we now all live and call our own. BY the end of the seventeenth century ninety-five percent of the Native Americans in New England were dead, and it was not just disease. As a matter of fact, Andrew Jackson was a huge contributor to the brutal genocide that went on over many
