The civil war between the ethnic groups Hutu and Tutsi in Rwanda, like many civil wars in Africa, had colonial roots. However, the civil war took a extreme turn for the worst on a tragic day in April where thousands of Tutsis lost their lives in a relentless genocide that lasted a hundred days carried out by the Hutus. In this essay, I will explain the cause of the civil war, the 1994 genocide and the aftermath of the genocide. According to a articley called “Rwanda: How the Genocide Happeneded” in the BBC NEWS site, the conflict between the Hutus and Tutsi originated with the arrival of the Belgian colonist. Belgian colonial leaders and the Catholic Church deepened the racial divide between the majority Hutu populated country of Rwanda, by awarding Tutsi ethnic group better job and education opportunities.
Danner spends numerous pages explaining how the Salvadorian army carried out the massacre, and each page is as educational and informing as the next. The Massacre at El Mozote is a convincing tale of unjust government abuse of military forces, and Danner successfully gets across his point of proving that the United States played “blind” in a matter where civilians needed help. Danner is able to tell the story through the eyes of a first hand account, that of Rufina, and allow for the reader to understand the horrifying actions that took place. The book’s evidence comes from a variety of sources, and explains how the both the United States and El Salvador reacted to the

The Genocide of the Armenians by the Turkish government during World War I represents a major tragedy of the modern age. In this the first Genocide of the 20th century, almost an entire nation was destroyed. The Armenian people were effectively eliminated from the homeland they had occupied for nearly three thousand years. This annihilation was premeditated and planned to be carried out under the cover of war. During the night of April 23-24, 1915, Armenian political, religious, educational, and intellectual leaders in Istanbul were arrested, deported to the interior, and mercilessly put to death.
The Rwandan Genocide of 1994 witnessed the horrifying genocide of 800,000 (Diep.2007:6) people and left a country devastated by mass famine and atrocious acts of war, such as torture and rape. The ensuing outcry of “never again” (Diep.2007:6) from the international community however, appears to have been nothing but moral lip service as global society has yet again lain as insidious witness to a similar conflict that emerged within Darfur in 2003. Similarity exists between the Rwandan and Darfur conflict in that both sets of conflicts have taken place as struggles over power and resources between ethnic tribes and dominant elites. Though the major similarity of these conflicts is the relatively slow and at times indifferent response of the
The World of Human Geography Interlaced with the Rwandan Genocide Many times in history, across the globe, innocent people were stripped of their calm lives, battered down, and slaughtered to death all due to the unfair discrimination of another race that claims they are superior.

Human Geography focuses on the aspects of geography that relate to different cultures, with an emphasis on cultural origins, movement and characteristics of regions.

They killed the Armenians using several methods. First, those who were in the army were disarmed, placed in labor battalions, and then killed. Second, the Armenian political and intellectual leaders were rounded up on April 24, 1915, and then killed. This date is Armenians all over the world commemorate this great tragedy.
