Sample text

It is this term which stayed on and which was subsequently legally acknowledged with the adoption of the 1948 United Nations Convention on the Prevention and the Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. As previously explained, finding a word to qualify such crimes – although necessary in order not to let the crimes be forgotten – would prove impossible not only because pre-existing terminology would necessarily be inadequate but also because, as the following development will highlight, even new vocabulary would fail to be suitable.

14 The Crime of Destruction and the Law of Genocide memory. The murders of the victims, the destruction of their bodies, their eradication from memory are all acts committed with the intention of completing the destruction of the group as a whole. Not only does genocidal death imply the destruction of life; it also involves the destruction of death and, once both the lives and the deaths of the victims are destroyed, the whole existence of the group targeted is annihilated. Dehumanizing Intent, the Destruction of Life and the Destruction of Death History has shown that, in all cases of genocides, the perpetrators of the crimes made sure that the human bodies of their victims were totally destroyed in order for them to be unrecognizable.

The crucial matter here is, therefore, far beyond the incorporation of a loved one for whom mourning was made impossible (due to the misfortunes of his family’s history), the pulverization and the destruction of the very link which unites a subject to his loved ones as, in the place of loved ones, only remains an anonymous corpse, the same for all, made Dehumanizing Intent and Destruction 15 of all these disparate pieces which strew the deportation paths. Under the weight of this violence, of this willingness of destruction, it is then the whole personal genealogical link of the individuals which finds itself broken and unreachable and the total link with the past is destroyed.
