Genocide In Western Sudan

Good Essays
According to Dictionary.com, Genocide is the deliberate and systematic extermination of a national, racial, political, or cultural group. In the mass population, when most people think about genocide, they think about the Nazi holocaust in World War II. Where Adolf Hitler ordered that all Jews be whipped off the face of the Earth. Over six million people died during those times. Up to that point, the world has not seen such a vile and horrible act done to another person since 1915 in Armenia. After 1945, it was 49 years later that another mass genocide occurred in 1994, the Rwanda genocides took place. Most notably, in 2003 to present. There is still mass killing in the Darfur region in Western Sudan. Which is surprising to a lot of people.
