Lemkin's House is set in the afterlife of Raphael Lemkin, the Polish-American lawyer whose family died in the Holocaust and who invented the word "genocide." He dedicated his life to fighting to have denocide declared an international crime. Lemkin is bombarded by people bursting into his home with complaints of more recent genocides in Rwanda and Bosnia. Lemkin must recognize that even his law is not enough to chance the world. He weighs his ethical accomplisments against his guilt for deserting his own doomed family, ultimately seeking not only justice by also forgiveness
