Genocide: Worse than War (PBS documentary)

This film is also available at http://to.pbs.org/hMZzq0 Watch Daniel Goldhagen’s ground-breaking documentary focused on the worldwide phenomenon of genocide, which premiered on PBS on April 14, 2010.

Read more about the devastating effects of genocide that often begin by signalling identity markers, enhancing distinction, objectification of an ‘inferior’ group justifying widespread violence – Armenian genocide, the Holocaust, Rwandan genocide etc. E.g During the 1930s Belgians started to use a system of identity cards in Rwanda sorting each individual as either Tutsi, Hutu, Twa or Naturalised.
