A Crime Without a Name

In 1944 a lawyer named Raphael Lemkin published a comprehensive account of Nazi actions and defined them with a new word – genocide, formed from the Greek geno, meaning “race” or “tribe,” and from the Latin cide, meaning “killing.” The term was adopted by the United Nations in 1948 at the “Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide," establishing genocide as an international crime.
