Elsewhere, few have even heard of it.

Eugenics and Genocide



Looking Away from Genocide

19 November 2013 | New Yorker

On March 25, 1971, the Pakistani Army launched a devastating military crackdown on restive Bengalis in what was then East Pakistan.

Some ten million Bengali refugees fled to India, where untold numbers died in miserable conditions in refugee camps.
