Raphael Lemkin And His Muse 29 août 2013
Par marcia abcarian - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
No one with a broad concern for the human condition could remain unmoved and without deep gratitude for the achievement this book represents. It offers the very touch and smell of the soil in which Raphael Lemkin's central concept germinated and conveys the calculating, insistent, unrelenting personal initiative it took for him to keep it alive.

But, beyond all that, I was struck by the irony that, when addressing anything but genocide and the law, Lemkin's writing seemed to take wing, as in his descriptions of childhood, his depictions of nature, suggesting to me that he sacrificed a profound literary creativity in order fulfill the mission he set for himself.

The Story of One Man's Mission To Save Humanity from Itself 29 août 2013
Par Na Steinson Ehrlich - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I met Raphael Lemkin in 1958. I was a student of Public Law & Government at Columbia Univ. Dr. Lemkin was an inspiration as a person. He had a mission to protect the cultures and peoples of the world from the heinous crime that befell his family and European Jewry during WWII. This book reveals his courage, his persistence and his positive attitude towards being able to do something important for the world in spite of all his struggles and hardships. He argued that If killing one person is a crime in most societies, what about the crime of murdering a whole people? The United Nations in its infancy was the perfect venue for supporting a Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, a term that he had coined. I thoroughly recommend this book to any one who is interested to know how one person persisted in changing the world through personal persuasion and the application of law. His belief in the law is a much needed reminder that all cultures have developed laws that circumscribe human behavior in order to survive with dignity and order.

The Fatality of Morality 9 mars 2014
Par bassammaelborno - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
A most Honorable Jew who died stricken with the 'Malady of Conscience'.

Afflicted with 'Care for Humanity', he suffered painfully.

Remaining true to his 'Affliction' though, he repelled any U.N. 'Compromising Remedies'.

He passed leaving behind 'Contagious Echoes of Human Dignity'.

As such, may his 'Illness' one day become a 'Plague'.

SAFEGUARDING THE RIGHTS OF OTHERS IS THE MOST NOBLE AND BEAUTIFUL END OF A HUMAN BEING

Par Peter - Publié sur Amazon.com

Raphael Lemkin was a regular visitor to my parent's home when I was growing up. He was my grand-uncle. I remember him well, and my parents and their friends speaking about him and his work both when he was and wasn't around; equally after he died (all too young). So, I knew well the story of his life and work. After his death all of his papers and books, etc. from his apartment in NYC lay preciously guarded under my train table in the basement of our family home in Hempstead, N.Y. - all except one - his autobiography was held by a rather unconscionable and greedy Mr. Gabriel, who wanted to find a buyer for the autobiography which he had custody of. Though having seen all of his other papers (now in several archives, donated by my father Robert Raymond Lemkin DDS) when they were in our home for 1.5 decades, I had never seen the manuscript of his autobiography. It took all these many years for someone to lovingly learn to read his handwriting; understand his revisions and put it in a logical order and complete a few parts that were only in outline. The book was a treasure for me to read. Raphael never talked about his boyhood, early adulthood, nor escape from Poland - I'm sure because it was too painful, and brought up the 49 family members lost to the Holocaust despite his pleas for others to flee with him. As persons here and elsewhere have noted, he devoted his life to one thing - using law and the power of morality to fight against the dark side of humanity - against crimes against humanity, against wars, and against the term of his coinage: genocide!
He was a lonely and poor man who always fought on against great odds and the obstacles of power and entrenched notions of international law and the interests of nations. He could have had a more normal life, but he chose the one he did because he felt he could choose no other - and we are all the richer for that; however, there is still a VERY long way to go to see his dreams ultimately realized. Long an obscure figure, except to the family and the few who knew him, his time now seems to have arrived. Many books and films have been made - others I know of are in production. Courses are taught on Genocide and some universities even have programs dedicated to its study.
Personally, he taught me how one person could make a difference in the World, and that one should first consider themselves a citizen of the World, before thinking of unimportant things like 'nationality' or 'clan', 'religion', speaker of this or that language, etc. Too many say 'what can I, one person, do?' I think my uncle Raphael answered that with the way he led his life.
I really enjoyed reading this book and it rings true to the man I knew and heard from and about so many times at my family home and from others. I was touched with the sensitivity he portrayed his innocent pre-war years, living in the Pale - as well as the descriptions of his worries, strategies, doubts and hopes to see his dream realized. It even was, partly, by the time he died. Sadly, it was not until many years after his death that the USA finally signed onto the Genocide Treaty of the United Nations (which he wrote and 'unofficially' haunted the U.N. to persuade nations to sign on to it at the U.N. and ratify it in their own homelands.
My thanks to the editor who so wonderfully made this unfinished manuscript a reality. I would suggest this book highly to anyone concerned about the issues that Raphael Lemkin devoted his life to, and for anyone who wants to know how one person can make a difference in the World....if only more of us would try. Peter R. Lemkin
