Gregory H. Stanton, President, Genocide Watch created steps to identify Genocide, the steps are listed below and they are explained using the Cambodian Genocide as an example. 1. CLASSIFICATION- Those were who intellectual, educated, Chinese, Thai, or Vietnamese were enemies of the Khmer Rouge. 2. SYMBOLIZATION- The blue scarf was like the Star of David. Even if you weren't wearing one didn't mean you were safe. 3. DEHUMANIZATION- People were treated poorly. The weak and disabled as well as the enemies were killed. Those were deemed not a threat were sent to labor farms where they worked hard hours with poor nourishment. Pol Pot wanted to create a rural farming society where the main crop was rice. 4. ORGANIZATION- Pol Pot was in charge of the organization and with the help of the Khmer Rouge moved people from the cities to the country sides and into camps where they worked. 5. POLARIZATION- Those were spoke a different language, wore glasses, or cried were often shot on the spot. There also wasn't a whole lot of split because everyone was in a bad situation. Some were shot while some worked to death. 6. PREPARATION- They either killed people on the spot or sent them to labor camps. 7. EXTERMINATION- Those who were killed on the spot were because they were enemies of the state. Some were taken to killing fields where over a million died. Others were shot. Those who were not enemies of the state were taken to labor camps where they were often worked to death. Over 2 million people were murdered. Over a quarter of the population perished in this terrible tragedy. 8. DENIAL- The Khmer Rouge invaded Vietnam and failed so they went into hiding into the hills along the border of Thailand and Cambodia. They carried out guerrilla attacks from the end of 1979 until the 1990s. The US supplied them weapons because they were anti-Vietnamese.
