    • 3 Pages

    Genocide was not defined as a punishable crime by the United Nations until 1942. Describing the heinous act as an “odious scourge,” the UN cites a dark history of considerable loss of human life in result of hatred, “with intent to destroy” one particular group of people (UN No. 1021).

    Some people hold grudges for something that has happened years ago, even if it is something historical. In 1923, 1.5 million Armenians had been murdered, or taken to a desert where they were not fed and died of starvation. Nobody, not even the international community, did anything to prevent or stop this. This resulted into killing about 3 thousand Armenian lives. It all started on April 24th, 1915.

    • 2 Pages

Similarly, in the Holocaust, Hitler blamed the Jews for all the economic problems…
