The systematic murder of six million European Jews has haunted me since childhood. How could it even happen? Genocide—a horror so huge it needed a new word. Slowly, the world community, through the United Nations, has begun struggling with the need to prevent crimes against humanity. The Responsibility to Protect is emerging as an international mandate following the failure of peacekeeping in Rwanda. Atrocities against civilians are still with us, but perhaps we are inching our way toward making Never Again more than an empty promise.
