As a Holocaust survivor and jurist, Thomas Buergenthal has been a tireless champion for the principle that governments and individuals must be held accountable under international law for human rights violations. Learn about the extraordinary life of Judge Buergenthal and his influence on global efforts to educate and empower a new generation of advocates to seek justice for victims and survivors and accountability for perpetrators.
