Genocide

Question:

describe 'genocide' in the context of 'The Holocaust'?

Andrew Mathis Responds:

You can see the UN definition for genocide here:

http://www.hrweb.org/legal/genocide.html

under Article II. There are five types, four of which apply to the Nazi Holocaust. Only "(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group" did not happen during the Holocaust. A full quarter of the six million Jews killed in the Holocaust were children.
