Genocide is defined in Article 2 of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (1948): – “any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group.”
