Let us exchange notes on killings and genocide

Monday July 20 2009

Writer Joshua Kron shows a commitment to bringing cases of genocide to public attention.

Our organisation, Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation, aims at preventing genocide by creating a community of policy makers, scholars, activists and opinion makers who can recognise situations where there is a risk of genocide and take measures to stop it.

The institute, through the Raphael Lemkin Seminar Series, holds workshops at the symbolic site of Auschwitz, Poland. The content is approved by the UN Special Adviser on Prevention of Genocide.

Past participants include James Waller (a visiting professor at the Centre for Holocaust Studies, University of Vermont), Sheri Rosenberg (director of the Human Rights and Genocide Clinic, Cardozo School of Law, Yeshiva University), and Alice Nzomukunda, former second vice-president of Burundi’s National Assembly.

Kron and other writers on genocide should contact us.
