Class Discussion Notes from Sept. 14
Is there a difference between settler genocides and conqueror genocides?
Were the indigenous people in conqueror genocides wiped out to the extent that they were in settler genocides?
The settler genocides continued for a longer period of time- settler genocides were more “effective” (I hate this word)
French- Algerian genocide: French in Algeria from the 1930’s to the 1960’s- during this time Algeria was legally part of France. The settlers in Algeria were known as “Pieds Noires” (“black feet”) (similar to “redneck” today)
Algeria on a map!
Israel is basically a settler society – started as a movement of Zionists in the 1980’s (Jews should go back to Israel)
1948- Israel created, motivated by Zionist ideology
