Movie: Watchers of the Sky
A film by Edet Belzberg. With his provocative question, "why is the killing of a million a lesser crime than the killing of an individual?" Raphael Lemkin changed the course of history. An extraordinary testament to one man's perseverance, the Sundance award-winning film Watchers of the Sky examines the life and legacy of the Polish-Jewish lawyer and linguist who coined the term genocide. An impassioned visionary, Lemkin confronted world apathy in a tireless battle for justice, setting the stage for the Nuremberg trials, and the creation of the International Criminal Court. Inspired by Samantha Power's Pulitzer Prize-winning book A Problem From Hell.
