Is Never Again … Again?
April 27, 2022, 12:00 pm-1:00 pmFree
The Holocaust played a defining role in guiding our response to war crimes and crimes against humanity. The Nuremberg Trials sought to hold accountable Nazi officials and others deemed complicit in the atrocities, establishing the precedent of individual accountability for violations of humanitarian law. Subsequently, the international community established special tribunals for Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia before setting up the permanent International Criminal Court in 2002. Yet, as events in Syria, Afghanistan and Ukraine show, never again has instead been … again.
This thought-provoking conversation between Tali Nates and Roni Amit will discuss how far we have come since the Holocaust and ask what the international community can do in response to war crimes and crimes against humanity. What is the appropriate response to events currently unfolding in Ukraine from a humanitarian law perspective?
Tali Nates is the founder and executive director of the Johannesburg Holocaust & Genocide Centre. Ms. Nates is a historian who lectures internationally on Holocaust education, genocide prevention, reconciliation and human rights. Born to a family of Holocaust survivors, her father and uncle were saved by Oskar Schindler. Nates is in Tulsa as the keynote speaker for the free 24th Annual Tulsa Interfaith Holocaust Commemoration at 7 p.m. on April 28 for her talk When Silence led to Persecution and Death of Millions.
Roni Amit is an assistant clinical professor of law and director of the Terry West Civil Legal Clinic. She has worked on access to justice, migration, and human rights issues in Israel, South Africa and the U.S. Her scholarship focuses on rights realization and the efficacy of international and domestic rights protections.
