Join lovers Mike and Jeri as they discover the romantic true secrets of one of the great world capitals born of the civilization of the Aztecs and before them the rulers of the mysterious pyramids of Teotihuacan into modern times with world class artists like Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera as well as writers like Carlos Fuentes and Octavio Paz where not even systemic earthquakes or the city's gradual sinking into the Aztec lake it was built over can stop its march to world glory.
Regarding the destruction of the Aztecs and their civilization, “A Genocide of course from my study of history, but in today's world Genocide is a legal term and secondly it is described with the "intent"to annihilate . Clearly, it was survival and the conquistadors wanted to wipe them out. It was the "intent" both physical and cultural. Diseases of the Europeans destroyed them also.
Now the UN has (5) or more specifications on what constitutes a "Genocide."
1. Removal of children from one culture to another
2. The forced pogroms of a people from their lands
3. Extermination of a people
4. Destroy an ethnic, racial, religion group, etc
5.Imposing ways of preventing births of the targeted group.
There may be other factors as well according to International Court of Genocide and International Criminal Court and other legal institutions .” - Gary A. Kulhanjian, Social Historian
