He invented the concept and word genocide and propelled the idea into international legal status. An uncommonly creative pioneer in ethical thought, he twice was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.Although Lemkin died alone and in poverty, he left behind a model for a life of activism, a legacy of major contributions to international law, and not least an unpublished autobiography.
