Genocide in a Nutshell

Genocide is defined by as "the deliberate and systematic extermination of a national, racial, political, or cultural group." Genocide was first used as a term in Raphael Lemkin's text Axis Rule in Occupied Europe. The text detailed the destruction caused in Nazi controled areas. Genocide then became a possible conviction to be issued by the United Nations on January 12, 1951. Genocide has not been stopped after Nazi Germany was disbanded. Currently, genocide is being preformed by Russian troops in Chechnya, against the Chechen people. In Sudan's South/Nuba Mountains by the Sudanese government against the Dinka and Nuer people. The Sudanese government is also preforming genocide in Darfur against the Fur, Zaghawa and Masaalit peoples.
