    Nuremberg
    The trials at Nuremberg were to convict those who were involved in the persecution and murder of the Jewish population. These crimes were called as war crimes, because they attacked the innocent, not those directly involved in the war. The killings were so big however, that there were too many defendants to try in court. Those who were most directly involved in the killing were given the harshest sentences, but there were a great many who received short sentences, or even none at all. Many of the defendants also pleaded that they were only following the rules of a greater authority. These trials were effective, but only to a certain extent. So many Jews were killed, and the world should have intervened much earlier than they did. This mass murder was planned out so well, and so many people were involved that it was impossible to try them all. A great number of people were simply set free, when they shouldn't have been.

    This court however, is not very effective, because they have only tried 18 defendants in the past eight years. Rwanda itself arrested many, but without the organization of a bigger superpower, it lacks the ability to put them on trial. There is not enough room for all the prisoners, so, like Nuremberg, most of the people arrested were set free.
    These solutions have not been very effective, as not many people have been tried in court. Although there is not enough time to try every single person, more courts can be set up, and the process can be sped up. There are limitless ideas that could be put into use in trying those who are guilty, yet there is little being done.

    This article gives a simple explanation of what happened during the genocide. It has a lot of statistics, such as percentages and numbers. It is not at all opinion based, it states only facts. In summary, it says that the plane of the Hutu president was shot down, and it served as a pretext for a mass murder of the Tutsi population. Militia went from house to house, killing, and many of the women were raped. It took a long time for the UN to intervene, and even then, the killings were not called genocide.
