Gomez1Bryan GomezMr. FedeHolocaust\Genocide Studies29 September 2017Raphael Lemkin and the UN Convention on Genocide1)Lemkin as young boy experienced firsthand the massacre of many Jewish people and his family was also killed not too long after that.2)It influenced Lemkin by getting him to look into the injustice of how the law handled the case of Tehlirian and his oppressor Talaat.3)State Sovereignty is basically an independent state that has full control over anything in its boundaries. 4)During this time, Hitler was taking full control over Germany and had many supporters convinced his ideals were right, therefore Lemkin’s law was not attractive during that time.5)The notion of state sovereignty was an obstacle for lemkin and his law because it meant that if a state wanted to not follow the law he created then it would be fine and no reinforcement would be carried out.6)Hitler meant that the Armenian massacre has little importance to anyone because it was not spoken of and the statement related to lemkin’s ideas and goals because if lemkin isn’t successful with his law to prevent genocide then people like Hitler will not stop.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
