Author: CNNRaphael Lemkin (June 24, 1900 – August 28, 1959) was a Polish lawyer of Jewish descent. He is best known for his work against genocide, a word he coined in 1943 from the root words genos (Greek for family, tribe, or race) and -cide (Latin for killing). He first used the word in print in Axis Rule in Occupied Europe: Laws of Occupation - Analysis of Government - Proposals for Redress (1944), while the Holocaust was occurring. During a video interview with Raphael Lemkin, the interviewer asked him about how he came to be interested in this genocide. He replied; "Became intersted in genocide because it happened so many times. It happened to the Armenians, after Armenians Hitler took action".
