Essay from the year 2015 in the subject Law - European and International Law, Intellectual Properties, grade: -, , language: English, abstract: Despite sharing historical roots, genocide and persecution are increasingly considered two separate crimes with divergent legal elements that represent two different social wrongdoings. Genocide is a crime aimed at the destruction of groups, characterized by intent to destroy the group, whereas persecution is an offense aimed at serious discrimination against individuals, characterized by the mass or systematic character of the killing. Therefore, this paper will tackle the question of moral difference between genocide and persecution and ask why genocide can still be considered the “crime of crimes” if, contrary to persecution, it does not even require a mass-scale attack or a high number of victims. The most convincing approach argues that genocide risks more ancillary harm due to the additional intent not only to harm current group members, but also to destroy the group itself. Genocide per se is not worse than persecution, but it is more likely to expand into massive devastation. This is the reason why even “small” genocides need to be prosecuted, punished and prevented by international law.

A groundbreaking reexamination of the Holocaust and of how Germans understood their genocidal project Why exactly did the Nazis burn the Hebrew Bible everywhere in Germany on November 9, 1938? The perplexing event has not been adequately accounted for by historians in their large-scale assessments of how and why the Holocaust occurred. In this gripping new analysis, Alon Confino draws on an array of archives across three continents to propose a penetrating new assessment of one of the central moral problems of the twentieth century. To a surprising extent, Confino demonstrates, the mass murder of Jews during the war years was powerfully anticipated in the culture of the prewar years. The author shifts his focus away from the debates over what the Germans did or did not know about the Holocaust and explores instead how Germans came to conceive of the idea of a Germany without Jews. He traces the stories the Nazis told themselves—where they came from and where they were heading—and how those stories led to the conclusion that Jews must be eradicated in order for the new Nazi civilization to arise. The creation of this new empire required that Jews and Judaism be erased from Christian history, and this was the inspiration—and justification—for Kristallnacht. As Germans imagined a future world without Jews, persecution and extermination became imaginable, and even justifiable.
