Abstract

This article proposes a discussion of some of the aspects that contribute to characterize the definition of victim of genocide, suggesting some sort of erosion of purely legal limits, in favor of a definition of a victim of genocide to include all the many and sometimes conflicting voices of those who are direct or indirect witnesses of the "crime of all crimes." The definition of victim from the point of view of the circumstances concrete is sometimes difficult, complex and prone to disputes, particularly when you are faced with a number of substantial casualties. It is essential, therefore, set up a personal right of the victim to monetary damages operated against not only the offender, but also the state; and compensation moral, depending on penalties. Atrocities in a large scale, as in the case of genocide, may be prevented through constant and rigorous involvement of civil society that can and should be involved
because the victim and because at the same time capable of implementing prevention programs and education for non violence.
