Persecution is when one person defines another by an attribute of the other person (race, physical appearance, social status, beliefs, etc.) and then proceeds to punish or vilify those with that attribute.


Examples are Hitler's policy of exterminating Jewish people in Germany and in occupied countries during WW II, and many settlers of early America escaped religious persecution in their native lands, like the Pilgrims.
