I'm currently looking at international criminal law and I understand the definitions of Genocide, crimes against humanty and war crimes (as highlighted in the Rome Statute) but I can't quite understand the differences between them. I know some of the obvious differences such as genocide is the intent to destroy a whole or part of an ethnic group, national group or religious group while crimes against humanity aren't as specific.

Can anyone think of any other differences between them? Thanks.
