Raphael Lemkin Project

Raphael Lemkin, who taught at Rutgers during the mid-1950s, had a dream: to end genocide. In 1944, he coined the word genocide and successfully fought for its 1948 criminalization in international law. CGHR’s Raphael Lemkin Project honors this legacy by hosting three annual events: (a) an annual Raphael Lemkin lecture held each year around December 9, the date of the 1948 UN Genocide Convention and the related International Genocide Remembrance and Prevention Day; (b) a lecture by survivors on the January 27 International Holocaust Remembrance Day; and (c) a Raphael Lemkin Award during the April Genocide Awareness Month.
