Remembering Genocide identifies how some of the most tragic events in modern history are remembered. The book covers a wide range of genocides across Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and the Americas, as well as looking at more well-known genocides like the Holocaust and the Bosnian, Armenian, Cambodian and Rwandan genocides. Given the geographical dispersion of the sites of genocide, the varied historical circumstances that shaped events and how culturally disparate the victims are, remembering genocide has proved highly problematic and taken many forms. Remembering Genocide therefore highlights the long-term global ramifications of coming to terms with genocide.
