Comparing Definitions of Genocide

NPR's Michele Norris talks with Jerry Fowler, staff director of the Committee on Conscience at the United States Holocaust Museum, about defining genocide. Secretary of State Colin Powell told NPR Wednesday that the conflict in Sudan's Darfur region does not yet equal genocide. Fowler explains how the concept is defined in international treaties and then parsed by countries.
