Hitler's war against the Jewish population was well published and placed in the eyes of almost all. Yet what of the American genocide.

    Can you imagine yourself living during the time that WWI was going on? I'm pretty sure you'd be terrified to even walk out of your house. Like it wasn't bad enough that the whole world was at each other's throat, but to know that your country may be at the hands of another leader. A leader who may have different perspectives on every day life, with the benefit of doubt that it may be extremely foreign to you, is pretty scary. I'm pretty sure that it would make you or anyone else feel extremely u...

The word genocide is from the Greek genes, meaning " race", or "tribe", and the Latin cide, meaning "killing". The First Significant Genocide... The Armen...

Unfortunately, sometimes people can have a deep-rooted hatred of an entire group of people. This hatred of people leads to genocide. Everybody knows about genocide, few know how to define it, and even fewer know what to do about it. Everyone also knows about at least one genocide: the Holocaust. However two other not-so-widely-known genocides were the Armenian...
