When: Sunday, February 22, 2015, 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Where: Temple B'nai Brith of Somerville • 201 Central Street • Somerville

The film Watchers of the Sky 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 who believed that international 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 us on a provocative journey from Nuremberg to The Hague, from Bosnia to Darfur, from criminality to justice, and from apathy to action.

Followed by a discussion.
