We had to pick an assignment out of like 6 after we finished reading the book Night. The assignment i chose is to write a 4-6 page paper that draws connections between the holocaust and more modern genocide, such as rwanda.

and im writing just comparing genocide, and explaining why its in the world, and how we can never truly stop it.

Im comparing how the two happened for no good reason, other than one group hating another group for no reason. (like the nazis hating the Jewish...)

No good reason? maybe but for a reason ...yes.

That's where things get tricky. Options. One's view maybe different from another. Good or bad.

Unless your purpose is strictly to state how you believe "x" event was pointless or great. I find it best to write or tell from a neutral standing.

Probably don't help you but...my advice "option" non the less.

Maybe look at "x" event from the other side. See where that takes you.

With what you have....assuming it is from the other side you can also use that as an aid to keep readers intrigued. Jump from one's view to the others.

All dictators have a reason. One way is making the people feel like they have someone to blame for their situation. If you can convince a large portion of the populous that another portion is the reason their children have no bread, genocide is easier to achieve. Fear and intimidation, plus separation of communities is another way less optimal way with the world being so connected now.

Slow genocide seems to work the best. Native inhabitants in two countries I can think of - I am sure there are more - have been over the years diminished through camps, sterilization, and systematic removal of their culture.
