So, according to the definition, there can be genocide without a single killing. This is an interesting fact about international criminal law.

Please read the following points:

• deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
• imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
• forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.

Here, in this three points, no death is mandatory. If I transfer babies of one race and send them somewhere else to be brought up in a different race with a view to eliminating the earlier particular race, it would be genocide.

@Arif Sir....you draw our attention to a very good point...I read about these types of genocide in Simum series, though those stories are not 100% true, but now i know that those descriptions are 'Genocide' in nature!
