Death March By:Ashley Estrada

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.

Death marches usually feature harsh physical labor and abuse, neglect of prisoner injury and illness, deliberate starvation and dehydration, humiliation and torture, and execution of those 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 (a form or "execution by labor", as seen in the Armenian genocide among other examples)
