Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:
Essay Topic 1
In the mid-1980s, advocates for U.S. ratification of the genocide treaty argued that ratification would mean that the U.S. would now be able to file genocide charges against a country in the International Court of Justice. Using the text as backup, compare and contrast the United States' reaction to genocidal acts after it ratified the treaty with its reaction to them prior to ratification in order to decide whether ratification advocates' predictions had come true.
Essay Topic 2
Using the text as backup, investigate why, during the postwar period, the Holocaust was rarely discussed in general American society and glossed over in, if not omitted entirely from, books and films of the period. In particular, focus on the role American Jews had in encouraging this approach toward the Nazi atrocities against their people and why they did so.
Essay Topic 3
Describe and explain the nature and structure of the joint Hutu/Tutsi government that was the result of the 1993 Arusha Accords that ended Rwanda's first civil war.
