The 2019 Lemkin Book Award Ceremony honoring “The Killing Season” by Geoffrey Robinson (UCLA) will be held at the Cardozo Law Institute in Holocaust and Human Rights in New York City.
ISG’s Lemkin Award honors Raphael Lemkin, the originator of the concept of genocide and first exponent of a United Nations Genocide Convention. The biennial award recognizes the best non-fiction book published in English or translated into English that focuses on explanations of genocide, crimes against humanity, state mass killings and gross violations of human rights, and strategies to prevent such crimes and violations.
