Academics Christopher Browning, and Daniel Goldhagen have very strong suggestions as to how the German soldiers became ruthless killers in their essays. Equivalently, historians who have studied the Rwandan genocide have reported that Hutus were also conditioned through a process to transform from victims of colonization to violent murderers.
