|Good question, Lola.
The word 'massacre' means "the unnecessary, indiscriminate killing of a large number of human beings or animals."
The test sentence talks about whole villages (of people and animals) that were killed.
Here is a dictionary link:
"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power." ~ Abraham Lincoln
