The article presents information on the history of the Genocide Convention. The term "genocide" was first proposed by Raphael Lemkin in his 1944 book "Axis Rule in Occupied Europe." It is stated that Lemkin was concerned about the judgment of the International Military Tribunal (IMT) in Nuremberg, Germany, which didn't punish Nazis for their alleged atrocities against Jews and other minorities within Germany. The Convention for the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide was held in Paris, France, in 1948, where the General Assembly of the United Nations recognized genocide as an international crime.
