Leo Kuper[edit]

A man known as Leo Kuper? Isn't that his real name then? Just curious. -- Necrothesp 12:24, 24 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Warrigal Creek[edit]

I'm removing this because it's not in the time frame of the UN. Rich Farmbrough 16:02, 28 August 2005 (UTC)

Yes, and while we're at it lets remove the Armenian Genocide because it took place 30 years before the creation of the UN and therefore isn't notable...well really, how ignorant can you get? Evolver of Borg 22:04, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

By all means remove the Armenian incident, which should not be on the Genocidal massacre page. I moved the text to Warrigal Creek and did some research on the subject. For reaons I forget I didn't have time to re-write the apalling paragraph that was there, but I did put some references at the foot of the article, to help anyone who feels like creating a proper well sourced article.

If Warrigal Creek was moved, why is it back? I'd never heard of the term "genocidal massacre" before, but if it refers to violations of the UN Convention then this scenario doesn't apply... Nicolasdz 09:25, 6 March 2006 (UTC)


I have rewritten the article using a reliable source. It needs to be expanded using other reliable sources. --PBS (talk) 18:16, 10 January 2009 (UTC)


An orphan tag was added to this article by Khazar2 at 07:12, 19 April 2012‎ I moved it here because it is an editor to editor message and adds no information for a reader to the article about Genocidal massacres. -- PBS (talk) 07:48, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

20+ articles link to here now, was this that hard to de-orphan? The Find link tool found even more linkable articles, but I think I got enough of them. My takeaway, as a reader, is that this topic is well-covered (probably over covered) by Wikipedia. I sense some redundancy. Wbm1058 (talk) 02:53, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

AfD at Definitions of Pogrom[edit]

Trafzer and Hyer[edit]

I have removed a paragraph added by an IP address (Revision as of 04:20, 16 February 2018) citing Trafzer and Hyer and stating "Trafzer and Hyer note numerous genocidal massacres ..." The cited book is:

  • Trafzer, Clifford; Hyer, Joel (1999). Exterminate Them: Written Accounts of the Murder, Rape, and Enslavement of Native Americans during the California Gold Rush. Michigan State University Press.

The text of this book can be viewed at Google Books. A search of "genocidal" turns up one page and the word "massacre" on five others. However the authors do not mention the phrase "genocidal massacre", so the text it was used to support was a WP:SYN. -- PBS (talk) 14:36, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
