Example of Genocide

Genocide is the mass extermination of a group of people, directly or indirectly. Genocide is legally a crime against humanity. Sadly, it's also a feature of human history, particularly during the colonial era. The legacy of genocide remains an issue in many Western countries and former colonies to this day. Genocide may also be considered as a cultural phenomenon, the destruction of a culture by a 'civilized' culture.

Examples of Genocide:

Western colonization and destruction of indigenous cultures in the New World, Australia, and other colonial era dispossession of lands. The Holocaust, the Nazi extermination of the Jews in the 20th century.
