A look at some of the genocides that have been committed during the twentieth century.

Genocide is a horrible crime, typically committed during times of war and therefore, largely ignored while it is occurring. Modern-day conflicts, such as the various wars in Africa and both World Wars have sufficed to make genocide seem almost commonplace. It is not the apparently common nature of genocide that allows it to go ignored, however. It is largely politics and rules of war that keep many nations from interfering when such things occur. It is also relatively easy to hide acts of genocide in a war-torn country, at least it was for the Soviet Union, for some time. Sadly, genocide is a very effective tool of war. Inflicting widespread terror, hopelessness, hunger and shame on your enemy leaves them with very little fighting spirit. Oppressive government and rebel leaders know this, and so, even in the 20th and into the 21st century, when the world should be moving forward, this barbaric form of warfare continues.
