Dr. Steven Leonard Jacobs, the Aaron Aronov Endowed Chair in Judaic Studies at the University of Alabama, will speak on the work and impact of Raphael Lemkin, the Polish lawyer who coined the term “genocide.” From an international lawyer and scholar, to father and motivating force behind the United Nations 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, Lemkin’s legacy and memorial to his own murdered family, and other victims of genocides throughout history, are tributes not only to the power of goodness to change the world but also to the power of one solitary human being to make a difference.
