      UN to Honor Author of Anti-Genocide Convention

      The UN will honor the family members of the late Raphael Lemkin who, in wake of the Armenian and Jewish Holocausts, coined the term 'Genocide' and persuaded the US to legislate the Convention for the Prevention of Genocide, a document describing the various means employed by a particular government bent on the destruction of a nation based on methods employed by the Nazis. The UN adopted the Convention, the violation of which will justify the usage of international military force to come to the aid of the victims.
