the Parsley Massacre was the result of a tenuous relationship between Dominicans and Haitians
Historians estimate that anywhere between 9,000 and 20,000 Haitians were killed in the Dominican Republic on the orders of the Dominican dictator Rafael Trujillo.Bodies were dumped in the Massacre River, ominously named after an earlier colonial struggle between the Spanish and French
Dominicans did not support the Haitians fight for independence as they though it would server connections with Europe
Dominican soldiers carried a spring of parsley and would ask people suspected of being Haitian to pronounce the spanish word for it "perejil"Those whose first language was Haitian Creole found it difficult to say it correctly, a mistake that cost them their lives
Auschwitz concentration camp
Is in Oświęcim, Poland. They are
similar because Hitler killed a mass
of people, and so did Trujillo.
Everyone at the Concentration camp arrived around May 1940. The first extermination took place in September 1941.
From early 1942 until late 1944, trains delivered Jews to the camp's gas chambers from all over Europe.

1. Even though many Haitians were born in the Dominican Republic, thousands were rounded up and killed; stabbed and hacked to death with machetes and bayonets on orders from dictator Rafael Trujillo.
2. Many Dominicans tried to help the Haitians escape the violence brought on by their dictator, but they too were targeted for death.
3. The Massacre River is a body of water separating Haiti and the Dominican Republic. It was named the “Massacre River” after prior conflicts between Spain and France.
4. The “El Corte” is another name for the River Massacre, which means the cutting.
5. Many children in the Dominican Republic under the rule of Rafael Trujillo were taught that native Dominicans were white and of Spanish descent, whereas Haitians were black and of African slave descent.
