  1. Death march

    A death march is a forced march of prisoners of war or other captives or deportees with the intent to kill, brutalize, weaken and/or demoralize as many of the captives as possible along the way. It is distinguished in this way from simple prisoner transport via foot march. Death marches usually consist of harsh physical labor and abuse, neglect of prisoner injury and illness, deliberate starvation and dehydration, humiliation and torture, and execution of those who are unable to keep up the marching pace. The march may end at a prisoner of war camp or internment camp, or it may continue until all the prisoners are dead. The signing of the Geneva Convention made death marches a form of war crime.
