“Post-Holocaust Era”

The Holocaust Era

In part because of these ambiguities, concept of genocide languished for over two decades after Genocide Convention entered into force in 1951. The renewal of interest in genocide can be traced to two main factors. First, trial and execution of captured Nazi Adolf Eichmann, in Israel in 1961 to 1962, spawned the flood of research and commentary on Jewish Holocaust—for many, still paradigmatic case of genocide. The analyses gradually assumed the comparative bent, as scholars became interested in other cases of genocide, such as destruction of Armenian population of Ottoman Turkey during World War I.
