The world has been a tragic place for some. Wars, genocides, famines, and riots are one thing, but people who have ripped, raped, and mercilessly killed people is another. You might have seen a number of documentaries or movies based on famous murderers of the past, but there is nothing close to reading what they have been doing and how. Therefore, let us take a look into some of the most evil personalities in history, who never failed to amaze the world with their gruesome acts.
Talat Pasha was Sultan’s Grand Wazeer during the Ottoman Empire from 1917 to 1918. In 1915, Talat ordered to wipe out the Armenian race from the face of the world. In response, people were raped, killed, tortured, whipped, and robbed. In addition to that, every American was forced into concentration camps. These people were forced to carry supplies for miles without any water or food. Many of them breathed their last along the way and were killed as well if they were not able to continue. People were naked when they marched, and the entire male population of Angora was exterminated. Furthermore, people were killed with saws, hammers, spades, and axes, etc. along with being forced to rape their own family members. If that was enough for you, it was not for Talat Pasha. He continued cutting off the sexual organs and burned, drowned, boiled, dismembered, crucified, and had beaten people to death. Until his assassination in 1921, Talat Pasha had killed 1 to 1.5 million Armenian people from a total of 2.5.
Attila The Hun
Until his death in 453, Attila was the Khan of the Hun in 434. At the time, Attila was the leader of the Hunnic Empire, which had its wings spread out from Germany to the Ural River and from the Danube River to the Baltic Sea. The majority of Western Europe remembers Attila as the epitome of rapacity and cruelty. In 441, an unsuccessful campaign was launched in Persia, which resulted in the invasion of the Eastern Roman Empire, its success was the primary source of Attila’s invasion of the West. Attila would pass through Austria and Germany unhindered, without anybody having to even touch him, destroying everything in his way and with such unparalleled ferocity that the world had never seen.
Vlad was the prince of Wallachia three times in 1448, 1456 to 1462, and 1476. Today, he is known for inspiring the legend of Dracula, which highlights the fact of how much he enjoyed killing and torturing people. The last name Dracula meant little devil. His favorite method of killing people was impalement. Vlad would attach a horse with the legs of the victim, and a sharpened staked was forced into the body. The end of the stake was oiled, and special care was taken to ensure that it was not too sharp. Usually, the stake entered through the buttocks and forced through the body until it exited from the mouth. Not only did Vlad used to impale humans but animals as well. It was undoubtedly the most painful way of killing someone, and many victims would endure this for hours and days. He would even impale babies and children through the chest of their mothers. He did not want the stake to be too sharp because then it would kill the victim soon, and the process would not be that much enjoyable.
Joseph Stalin dictated the Soviet Union from 1922 to 1953. During his rule, Stalin has signed death warrants of thousands of people. He was a dictator in a true sense. Stalin admired people who treated him as God and killed those who displeased him and did not bow down to him. During his early years as a young individual, Stalin was a bank robber, assassin, and an agitator. He had traveled long to come into power, and by the time he did, he had become unforgiving, ruthless, paranoid, and brutal. Brutal and ruthless to the point where he exiled his daughter’s boyfriend. His treatment of his wife led her to commit suicide. Furthermore, his son died in a Nazi concentration camp after Stalin had refused to trade for his life. It is recalled that Stalin had once kissed a small girl in public. The girl became quite famous and thought that Stalin genuinely loved and cared for her until he went on to kill her parents.
While the world had experienced enough of Joseph Stalin, it was Hilter’s turn to make a name for himself. Adolf Hitler was the Chancellor of Germany from 1933 until his death in 1945. Initially, Hitler wanted to be an artist, but he failed. Then, he joined the army during World War 1. During the war, Germany surrendered, and it made Hitler bitter. Hitler then turned his attention towards Jews. He thought that the Jews were the problem, and they were not human beings. Hitler went on a murdering spree, killing everyone he thought was a part of the problem. His plan was to kill every Jew in Europe and gain world control. Hitler would use wounded people in hospitals to conduct experiments to discover new ways of killing, such as carbon dioxide gas. These experiments would go on to kill 300,000 people.
Pol Pot was the Prime Minister of Cambodia from 1976 to 1979. His idea was to introduce a new age of civilization in Cambodia by destroying the existing one. Therefore, Cambodia was turned into a killing field. Pol Pot is remembered as the only person in history who officially declared genocide against his own country and killed the largest number of people before he even came to power. Thousands of people were killed due to malnutrition, torture execution, and starvation. His government, which was communist in nature, forced mass evacuations. As a result, a lot of families were displaced and separated. Pregnant women and elderly people were forced to stand in water up to their necks during the rainy and cold seasons. They worked in canals until their feet swelled and started bleeding. If in case a worker made a mistake, they were either shot or flogged to death. Pol Plot wanted the young individuals to be trained for the love of killing. He could not stand the Vietnamese people. If Cambodian people married the Vietnamese, both husband and wife would be killed. Even people who spoke or looked like Vietnamese were killed. Prisoners were forced to drink urine. While people were being executed, he would take pictures and record the execution in detail. He would often order his people to kill others by bleeding to death and would keep the skulls of dead people. According to Pol Pot, human lives had no value and carried no significance.
The list of the evilest men in history could go on, but the individuals mentioned above laid down the foundation of the most heinous crimes the world has ever seen. It was far beyond what humanity could have ever imagined and suffered. While history remembers people who worked for the betterment of humanity and the world altogether, it also, unfortunately, remembers the lives that were snatched to amuse these inhumane personalities.
