In the face of increasing globalization, there is the growth of complex worldwide socio-economic, cultural, and political issues impacting the health of vulnerable groups. Efforts in strategic global destabilization and increases of genocidal efforts are argued to have contributed and continue to contribute to increases in human trafficking of both children and adults including organ trafficking. Common victims of trafficking are populations deemed undesirable or unworthy at large, often defined by physical or mental conditions, race and ethnicity, and gender. Trafficking of women and children is a common outcome of any genocidal effort. Within this chapter, the Holocaust, the most glaring genocide event, provides a framework for exploring current situations of genocide, its correlation and effect on human trafficking, and the resulting impacts on modern healthcare providers and nurse educators and the need to continue to spotlight these issues.
