The debate „Why Lemkin” is intended to bring to the attention of wide audiences the significance of the concept of genocide – a new crime under international law – both in the context of the tragic experiences of the Second World War and in the present world, 70 years after the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide was adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations Organization (which happened on 9 December 1948). The author of the concept and the driving force behind its codification was Rafał Lemkin, a Polish lawyer of Jewish ethnicity.

Death for a loaf of bread . The history of the Lubkiewicz family

Projekt bez tytułu
Leon Lubkiewicz, Maria Lubkiewicz.

During the Second World War, many Poles helped their Jewish compatriots. Such assistance was offered both institutionally and spontaneously, at grass-roots level. But irrespective of what exactly they did, those who aided Jews in any way risked their very lives, risked being arrested, or simply risked being deported to a concentration camp. To illustrate this point, we would like to present the history of the Lubkiewicz family, which similarly to the Ulms paid the highest price for saving their co-citizens.
