Transcript of genocide

From 1975 until 1979 this tragic event has sadly occurred because of the Khmer Rouge regime, the name given to the followers of the Communist party of Kampuchea. Pol Pot, Nuon Chea, and several other led this party that ruled Cambodia. This Democratic party was in charge of condemning about 1.7 million people to their death out of 8 million, which is about 21% of their population. Political execution, starvation, and forced labor were to blame.
Where in the world??
The genocide in Germany lasted fom 1938 'til 1945. This genocide is one of the most famous genocides in the world between the nazis and the jews led by Adolf Hitler. This genocide used concentration and labour camps where they killed and did "medical" expiriments on numbers of the jews between 1933 and 1945. over 5.9 million jews were killed in the holocaust. In this genocide they used huge gas chambers to kill mass amounts of jews as fast as possible.
This genocide lasted between 1960 to 1996 between the government of Guatemala and leftist rebel groups supported chiefly by ethnic Mayan indigenous people and Ladino peasants. Up to 200,000 people died or went missing during the war, including 40,000 to 50,000 people who were "disappeared" and destroyed over 626 villages.
September 11, 1857: The Mountain Medows Massacre.
140 members of the Fancher-Baker wagon train of Arkansan emigrants to California were savagely slaughtered by the Mormon Militia in Utah.
They were innocent women, children, and men on the way to settle in California passing through Utah as Non-Mormons. Only 17 escaped injured, and their decendants are still alive in Utah, Arkansas, and California.
The goverment "washed their hands" by sentencing to death to one man for the tragedy. Only One. The responsibles were Utah's governor and his people but nothing was done to them.
What is Genocide?
100 Days of Slaughter. This happened between the Tutsis and the Hutu. Over 500,000 Tutsis and Hutu moderates were killed in this genocide. The genocide started on April 6th when a Hutu shot down the plane that Rwandan Prime Minister was in on their way to sign a peace treaty and finished in mid-July. The killing was organised by the Hutu milita. The United Nations were in the country at the time trying to keep the Rwandans safe from all the killing but as peace keepers, they were unable to take out any of the Hutu or keep them away. RTLM acused these peace keepers of shooting down the plane of the Rwandan Prime Minister.
This is where Hotel Rwanda was filmed and it is what the movie is based on.
Due to neglect by the government, Darfur has been the target of genocide by the Khartoum government.This genocide was between the Muslim Arab Sudanese and the Muslim Black Sudanese. This genocide began in 2003, an estimated 400,000 people have died directly or indirectly from the attacks since then. Approximately 3 million people survived the attacks, but were displaced to Internally Displaced Persons camps.Only about half of those who have been displaced received any aid. Others were left wandering the desert, suffering from starvation and illness. These camps in Chad and Sudan are overcrowded, disease infested, and prone to attacks. This genocide has not yet ended.
Impacts of Genocide:
People on opposite sides of a long-running conflict tend to distrust or even hate each other. Conflict can cause people to flee an area, either because of intolerable living conditions or forceful expulsion. Such situations can lead to more conflict when refugees try to return home.When conflict results in physical or psychological abuse, people can become traumatized. Trauma causes victims to continue to suffer, to be almost frozen in time. This effected the world because now there are less people in the world to do great things.
-“There is a place on earth that is a vast desolate wilderness, a place populated by shadows of the dead in their multitudes, a place where the living are dead, where only death, hate and pain exist.”
- Giuliana Tedeschi
Germany Holocaust
-“The first time it was reported that our friends were being butchered there was a cry of horror. Then a hundred were butchered. But when a thousand were butchered and there was no end to the butchery, a blanket of silence spread.
When evil-doing comes like falling rain, nobody calls out "stop!"
-When crimes begin to pile up they become invisible. When sufferings become unendurable the cries are no longer heard. The cries, too, fall like rain in summer.”
Bertolt Brecht
-“If human is capable of conducting genocide,
no need for an asteroid to wipe out dinosaurs.”
Toba Beta
Quotes from the Survivors
Genocide is a term created during the Holocaust and declared an international crime in the 1948 United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. The Convention defines genocide as any of the following acts committed with the intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:
a.Killing members of the group;
b.Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
c.Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
d.Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
e.Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
The specific "intent to destroy" particular groups is unique to genocide. A closely related category of international law, crimes against humanity, is defined as widespread or systematic attacks against civilians.
