For my final research paper, I took ideas from Professor Tamura’s unit and Professor Luis’s unit to craft an investigation of the UN definition of genocide. I specifically examined its limitations and how it fails to protect all victims of genocide. Genocide is a word that carries a lot of weight and comes with an enormous responsibility, so it is not used lightly. However, since the UN Genocide Convention was ratified in 1951, only three genocides have been acknowledged, even though there have been many more atrocities that should qualify. After explaining the Convention’s failures, I looked into a specific event in history that I argue should qualify as genocide but is not included in the definition: baby trafficking in Spain during Francisco Franco’s totalitarian regime (1939-1975) and after. Franco’s leadership and legacy are hardly talked about in Spain; everyone tries to ignore this dark history because it is too uncomfortable and shameful. However, this ignorance means that many victims have yet to find justice.
