mg-Stalin's campaign against the Ukraine is counted in the total for USSR-
Keith- About 400,000 of the Yazidi are in the the Kurdistan area of Northern Iraq. Perhaps another 50,000 are under the care of Syrian Kurds, and a smaller number are in Turkey. As to the women, that have been sold into slavery, I have heard that Iraqi Kurds are very quietly making efforts to buy them back. There is, of course, no hope for the dead.

As terrible and enormous as these events are, most people barely know about them. The estimates for genocides/democides in the 20th Century run as high as 270 Million, but with a few exceptions, they are rarely spoken about. And for the most part, that is after the fact.
Before we can deal with these things, we have to a least acknowledge them. And that is as far as I've gotten on this...
