To mark the first-ever UN International Day of Commemoration and Dignity of the Victims of the Crime of Genocide and of the Prevention of this Crime, we will be screening the film ‘Watchers of the Sky’ in collaboration with Aegis Trust and the West London Synagogue. The film interweaves four stories of remarkable courage, compassion, and determination, while setting out to uncover the forgotten life of Raphael Lemkin – the man who created the word “genocide,” and believed the law could protect the world from mass atrocities. Inspired by Samantha Power’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book, ‘A Problem From Hell’, ‘Watchers of the Sky’ takes you on a provocative journey from Nuremberg to The Hague, from Bosnia to Darfur, from criminality to justice, and from apathy to action.

The event is being held at the West London Synagogue, 33 Seymour Place, London W1H 5AU. Drinks and nibbles from 7pm, screening at 7.45pm and film will be followed by a Q&A. Entry is free, but donations towards catering are warmly invited. Please book tickets.
