Genocide Denial

Forensic Architecture

Holocaust negation developed alongside other political debates around the confirmation or denial of genocide. In the late 1970s, the context was the entangled killings on a massive scale in Cambodia by US bombing and by the Khmer Rouge. In the early 1980s, mass killing in Central and South America, and in the 1990s in Yugoslavia and Rwanda, were negated by several politically motivated groups: the techniques commonly used for such denial involve finding a single piece of material evidence to negate witness testimony, or insisting on negative evidence.
