What's New ? - Recent Additions 2004December 12 Remember the 1937 Nanjing Massacre December 13, 2004 is the 67th anniversary of the beginning of the Nanjing Massacre ( "The Rape of Nanking"), the start of a 6 week long genocidal massacre and mass rape by the Japanese Imperial Army in the Chinese capital city. Similar massacres occurred throughout this campaign, before and after December 13. As many as 300,000 civilians were murdered; an estimated 20,000-80,000 women were raped, most later murdered. See 60th Anniversary , Nanking Atrocities, "No More Nanjing" Association, Tokyo and Global Alliance to Preserve the History of WWII in Asia Remember this day in memory of author Iris Chang (1968 2004) and survivor advocate Li Xiuying (1918-2004). Chang, who died on November 9, wrote the 1997 book The Rape of Nanking: The Forgotten Holocaust of World War II translated into 13 languages. Xiuying, who died on December 4, challenged a Japanese denier and his publisher in court in 1999 after he called her a "false witness." On April 10, 2003 the Supreme Court in Tokyo directed the defendant to issue a public apology and pay 12 million Japanese yen to Xiuying for damage to her reputation.30 Nov 2004 Aegis Trust Report: ‘Darfur: management of a genocidal crisis’ (29 Nov 2004) Aegis Trust in the United Kingdom has published a report showing that the crisis in Darfur has its roots in racism; an Arab supremacist ideology going back decades. The report analyses this information through the lens of genocide prevention rather than the perspective of human rights or conflict resolution. The genocidal threat in Darfur, and its implications for the management of the crisis, have not been recognized by many policy makers in the international community. To read a 16-page summary of the report see www.aegistrust.org/images/stories/darfursummaryreport.pdf

26 July 2004 "Genocide Emergency" in Sudan 26 July 2004 For the first time in its history, the Committee on Conscience of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum today declared a “genocide emergency,” saying that genocide is imminent or is actually happening in the Darfur region of Sudan. According to their website, a "genocide warning" constitutes the third and highest level on their three-level "graduated categories of urgency." "Emergency" status indicates "acts of genocide or related crimes against humanity are occurring or immediately threatened." “That threat is now becoming reality.”said Committee on Conscience Chairman Tom A. Bernstein. “We don’t use the term [ genocide] lightly." said Jerry Fowler, staff director of the Museum’s Committee on Conscience, "But the situation clearly has reached the point now where that term is appropriate. Fowler visited refugee camps in Chad in May and collected testimonies from refugees who had fled Darfur. The victims in Darfur are largely members of the Fur, Zaghawa and Masaalit ethnic groups, considered in Darfur to be “Africans.” Read the US State Department's Report "Documenting Atrocities in Darfur" based on 1,136 interviews with refugees in Chad.

23 June 2004 Physicians for Human Rights Calls for Intervention to Save Lives in Sudan June 23, 2004 Field Team Compiles Indicators of Genocide Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) has gathered compelling information indicating that a genocidal process is unfolding in Darfur, Sudan. The organization is calling for a UN-backed resolution supporting robust intervention to prevent and punish the crime of genocide and has released a report that includes specific recommendations. A PHR field team, recently returned from the Chad/Sudan border, has compiled a list of indicators of genocide based on the testimony of victims and eyewitnesses in Chad and Darfur. These indicators show an organized intent on the part of the Government of Sudan and the government-backed Janjaweed militia to effect group annihilation of non-Arab civilians in Darfur. http://www.phrusa.org/research/sudan/

14 April 2004 European Network of Genocide Scholars [ENoGS]: Foundational Meeting, Berlin, January 13-15, 2005 at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt www.hkw.de The 100th anniversary of the genocide in former German Southwest Africa (now Namibia) is an appropriate occasion for the foundation of an “European Network of Genocide Scholars” during the international conference, "Genocides: Forms, Causes, Consequences. The Namibian War (1904-1908) in Historical Perspective.” (For more details see www.hist.net/ag-genozid/namibianwar ) While genocide research has become an established academic discipline in the USA since the 1970s, its institutional recognition is still in its infancy in many European countries. Whereas in the United States conferences, journals, and publication series attest to a vibrant community of genocide scholars, such a scholarly infrastructure is less well developed in Europe. With the foundation of ENoGS we attempt to foster scholarly exchange between individuals and institutions worldwide. It will be open to researchers from all academic disciplines working on genocide and mass violence from within and outside Europe. Its focus is historical and comparative. A webpage and a discussion-list as a forum for academic announcements and discussions are planned, as well as the publication of a journal or a yearbook. We attempt to cooperate with existing organisations wherever possible. We invite all interested parties to our foundational meeting in Berlin. Please share with interested colleagues. From August on, updated information on ENoGS and its foundation will also be available on our website: ENOGS Please do not hesitate to ask for further information: Contact Dr. Juergen Zimmerer firstname.lastname@example.org April 2004 “Why Neighbours Kill: Explaining the Breakdown of Ethnic Relations” will be held June 4-5, 2004 at University of Western Ontario at the Spencer Conference Centre.

The crimes committed by the Khmer Rouge are widely acknowledged, but no trial has been held. Now, with the support and encouragement of the United Nations, the Cambodian Government has established a Khmer Rouge Trial Task Force but funds for a trial are still lacking. On March 25, 2004 US Congressional Representatives Juanita Millender-McDonald (Dem.)and Dana Rohrabacher (Rep.) introduced a resolution (H. Con Res. 399) urging the President to provide encouragement and support for the ratification, establishment, and financing of a tribunal for the prosecution of surviving leaders of the Khmer Rouge regime. Congressman Tom Lantos, who is also a Holocaust Survivor, has become the first to co-sponsor the legislation. We encourage you to write your Congressperson and ask him or her to co-sponsor this important resolution.
