Genocide never just happens. There is always a set of circumstances which occur or which are created to build the climate in which genocide can take place. Download our ten stages of genocide poster which explains the different stages which lead to genocide.
Gregory H Stanton, President of Genocide Watch developed the 10 stages of genocide which explains the different stages which lead to genocide. At each of the earlier stages there is an opportunity for members of the community or the International Community to halt the stages and stop genocide before it happens.
Our ten stages of genocide poster explains the different stages, and can be downloaded and printed to use in your Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) activities.
