Comparing & contrasting: the Holocaust vs. the Bosnian genocide
Facts about the
The Bosnian Genocide was the worst act of genocide since the Nazi regime’s.
At a number of Nazi concentration camps, Nazi doctors conducted medical experiments on prisoners against their will.

By: Emily Shuman
Bosnian genocide took place between March 1, 1992- December 14, 1995
The holocaust took place from 1933-1945
In 1933, a man named Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany. Hitler blamed Jews for the German defeat during WW1 and for the economic hardships in Germany. Hitler believed that the supreme human possessed blonde hair and blue eyes and that we must rid the world of jews, gypsies, and the disabled. Hitler planned to do this by ordering his men (Nazis) to kill, mistreat, and abduct anyone guilty of such things.
On September 15, 1935 Hitler began enforcing the Nuremberg Laws which made it hard for Jews to participate in their normal everyday lives. The laws striped Jews of their citizenship, made it illegal for Jews to marry non-jews, removed Jews from schools and prevented Jews from certain professions such as serving in the military. After this many Jews were taken to concentration camps, killed, beaten, raped, or forced to flea.
The Bosnian Genocide began on March 1, 1992. During the Genocide many muslims were targeted and killed. The Serbs considered this "ethnic cleansing" and wanted to rid the area of all Bosniak muslims. Many innocent people were killed; more than 100,000 were dead by 1995 (80% bosniak). In July of 1995, 8,000 men and boys were killed by Serb forces. Many civilians lost their lives before the genocide was brought to an end in 1995.
Overall, the two genocides were very similar. They both targeted specific groups of people and ended with a very high death toll. They both consisted of torture, fear, rape, murder, and relocation. Both genocides occurred because of racism and false accusations.
Although, the genocides are different in some very obvious ways. The genocides occurred in different locations and time periods, different groups were targeted, and took place because of very similar but different motives.
In conclusion, the genocides are terribly similar and both brought tragedy and death.
