    The topic that I chose to write about for my research memo project is going to be about genocide. Genocide is something that unfortunately exists in this world we live in, and I want to get a better understanding of what it is. It is something that is extremely problematic in the world. With that said, I am doing this topic because I want to understand why genocide happens and how someone could participate in such an event.

I know the basics of what genocide is, but I do not extensively understand what genocide is. In the next paragraph, I am going to explain how my paper will go as far as organization wise. In the first part of my paper following my introduction paragraph, I will be writing about the origins of genocide first. This will include when the first documented case of genocide occurred as well as when genocide was officially declared a term.

    Around eight hundred thousand people were killed during the Rwandan genocide in 1942. Paul Rusesabagina, author of An Ordinary Man, sheltered and saved the lives of over twelve hundred would-have-been victims. The following quotes are important pertaining to the plot of the story and the challenges that the author faced. “We are a nation that loves to take people into our homes. I suppose our values are very much like the Bedouin of the Middle East, for whom sheltering and defending strangers is…

    In “Of Studies”, Francis Bacon explores the benefits and consequences associated with studies and to what degree they should be used. He claims that “histories make men wise”, which in the context of the Rwandan genocide, seems to mean learning and making an effort to understand the tragedies that occurred there (Bacon 10). To study the historical implications of an event so widely interpreted has the potential to challenge existing opinions about global society and the implications of such a…

    the genocide. Like the phrase “cut the tall trees”, which was a code for the Hutus that they used as signal for each other to kill the Tutsis.
