Genocide

Genocide is the intentional action to destroy a people—usually defined as an ethnic, national, racial, or religious group—in whole or in part. A term coined by Raphael Lemkin in his 1944 book Axis Rule in Occupied Europe, the hybrid word geno-cide is a combination of the Greek word γένος (genos, ) and the Latin suffix -caedo ().The United Nations Genocide Convention, which was established in 1948, defines genocide as including the killing of its members, causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group, deliberately imposing living conditions that seek to , preventing births, or forcibly transferring children out of the group to another group.
