Commentary: Remember all genocides, not just the Holocaust During World War II, between five and seven million Jews were killed in death camps and through other means of torture at the hands of a hate-fueled Nazi regime bent on wiping out their race.

سوق الاسهم السعودية اليوم مباشر This is not the first time a vengeful group of people has short-sightedly attempted to wipe out another.

الاسهم السعودية تداول A close examination of the facts reveals the Holocaust, as the Jewish extermination campaign is commonly known, was merely a jumping-off point for the genocide that was to come in the second half of the 20th century. The regime of the Khmer Rouge, led by Pol Pot, killed about 1.7 million of his own people in a terror campaign between 1975 and 1979.

السوق السعودي للاسهم المباشر The answer isn’t that difficult. Holocaust remembrance groups are simply more organized than awareness groups for any of the other groups attempting to warn the world of past campaigns.
