Film Screening: Watchers of the Sky

February 9th | 2pm $5 donation appreciated.


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 believed the 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 you on a provocative journey from Nuremberg to The Hague, from Bosnia to Darfur, from criminality to justice, and from apathy to action.

This film was recommended by the University of Minnesota as a great precursor to their presentation on February 17th Defining Genocide & the Holocaust.

CCHE will have a host on hand to give an introduction to the film and provide a handout that includes some items to consider while watching the film.

Popcorn and pop will also be provided.

Sponsored by: North Shore Music Association
