SUFFERN, N.Y. -- Asking why the killing of a million was a lesser crime than the killing of an individual, Raphael Lemkin coined the term "genocide," and changed the course of history.

The Sundance award-winning documentary film "Watchers of the Sky, " which chronicles Lemkin's life, will be shown on Thursday, Nov. 5, at 7:30 p.m. at Rockland Community College.

The film both examines the work of Lemkin, a Polish-Jewish lawyer and linguist who set the stage for the creation of the International Criminal Court, and

chronicles the story of four individuals currently working to keep his legacy alive.

Felice Gaer, director of the American Jewish Committee's Jacob Blaustein Institute for the Advancement of Human Rights, will be speaking at the event. Tickets are $13 in advance, and $15 at the door.

Additional information can be found at www.jccrockland.org/abc or by contacting Rockland Community College at (845) 574-4000.
