Film Screening and Panel Discussion: “Watchers of the Sky”
Please join us for a screening of “Watchers of the Sky,” the award-winning film chronicling the forgotten and important life of Raphael Lemkin, the Polish Jew who created the word “genocide.” The film was inspired by Samantha Power’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book, “A Problem from Hell,” which highly praised Lemkin for his seminal contribution to international law. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Martha Minow, Harvard Law School Dean, with Director Edet Belzberg and HLS professors Alex Whiting and Sam Moyn. This event is being co-presented with the Boston Jewish Film Festival, and co-sponsored by the Harvard Kennedy School Center for Public Leadership Gleitsman Program in Leadership for Social Change, and the Department of Visual and Environmental Studies at Harvard University.
