  8. 8.  Nearly 6 million Jews and 5 million "undesirables" were killed between 1933 and 1945 in Nazi Germany, in pursuit of Hilters "Final Solution." Before the Nazis seized power in 1933, Europes Jewish population was about 9.5 million, representing 60% of the worlds total Jewish population.

  11. 11.  The Genocide Convention took effect in 1951, after the horrors of the Nazi Holocaust resulted in a consensus that genocide is a crime of concern to the entire international community. Since then, the world watched as nearly 3 million civilians were slaughtered in Cambodia, Bosnia, and Rwanda.
