Conflict and Genocide

Dee Maguire


Genocide is an uncomfortable word, yet a word still in our vocabulary – the deliberate intent to destroy or kill a large targeted group of people. Research informs us about causative factors, but is this enough? Searching for answers through the prism of travel, and capturing meaningful insights where the conflicts occurred, creates an intimate narrative to an otherwise detached awareness.

Conflict and Genocide ventures to the Balkans, Poland, the Czech Republic, and Germany. It delves into the Holocaust of World War 2, and the fall of Yugoslavia.

Monstrosities that occur during war are not to be forgotten. The preservation of the notorious concentration camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau is testament to this. Reflection commands us to know the facts, how these events occurred, and to be watchful in the future. Complacency is a dangerous collective. Uncovering our past, is not to be solely preoccupied with it, but to learn what it is we need to learn.
