Sinonimi: race murder · racial extermination
Systematic killing of a racial or cultural group; SYN. race murder, racial extermination.
extermination of a race or people.
Deliberate and systematic destruction of a national, racial, religious, or ethnic group defined by the exterminators as undesirable. The term is commonly applied to the policies of the Nazis during World War II (what they called the “final solution”—the extermination of all “undesirables” in occupied Europe, particularly the Jews). See Holocaust.
In 1948 the United Nations General Assembly adopted a convention on the prevention and punishment of genocide, as well as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
