Genocides of the Twentieth Century

Genocide : “ … acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethical, racial or religious groups, as such.”
- United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, 1948.

“Genocide is not extreme war or conflict; it is extreme exclusion. Exclusion may start with name-calling, but may end with a group of people being excluded from a society to the point where they are destroyed.”


-James M. Smith, Co-founder of the Aegist Trust speaking to the London Assembly, 2006.
