Holocaust and Genocide Studies

FGw / Kjell Anderson

Dr Kjell Anderson     

'The word genocide immediately evokes images of the mass murder of Jews during World War II. But there are more twentieth-century examples of genocide: during World War I, Armenians were systematically persecuted and murdered, and more recently during the civil war in Rwanda Tutsis and moderate Hutus were also the victims of genocide. Is this kind of devastation a typical phenomenon resulting from twentieth-century genocidal ideology? The programme Holocaust and Genocide Studies attempts to explore this question.'
