In 1944, Raphael “Rafal” Lemkin a Polish attorney of Jewish descent created the word genocide. He combined the Greek word genos for “race/people” and the Latin word cide for “killing,” giving the following definition to the new world:

“The destruction of a nation or an ethnic group.”

Lemkin believed genocide was an international crime, threatening both interna-tional peace and the shared beliefs of humanity.

Terri O’Rorke has led a diverse life as a mother, grandmother, hair stylist, quilt-er, political activist, and author. She lives in New Hampshire.
