More like "Columbus staat bekend om de blauwe oceaan zeilen in 1492." Discover America, he did not.

Speaking of Columbus, is "volkerenmoord" the correct translation of "genocide" in Dutch?

According to Google Translate it is. This sentence should be removed or at least heavily edited because "incorrect" doesn't begin to describe it.

It is grammatically correct. Moreover, this is what he is known for, which is independent from the fact that he arguably did not discover America.
