‘Watchers of the Sky’ Focuses on Lemkin, Need for Justice



WATERTOWN — The Armenian Museum of America and the Massachusetts Coalition to Save Darfur present “Watchers of the Sky,” a film screening on Thursday, February 19, at 6:30 p.m. The 120-minute film will be shown in the Adele and Haig Der Manuelian Galleries, third floor. Admission is free. Light refreshments will be served. Donations will be accepted.

“Watchers of the Sky” interweaves four stories of courage, compassion and determination, while setting out to uncover the forgotten life of Raphael Lemkin, the man who coined 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 viewers on a provocative journey from Nuremberg to The Hague, from Bosnia to Darfur, from criminality to justice, and from apathy to action.
