The work of Raphaël Lemkin on the defense of Human Rights has lead to the creation of the concept of genocide which constitutes the fundamental piece of the United Nations Organization’s Charter of Human Rights. This has been made possible among others, by his study of the case of the genocide of Armenians.
Thanks to this expertise, Raphaël Lemkin has allowed for the Armenian cause to become a paradigm for the people that have been submitted to genocide and in this sense it represents a Just for our people. Also, the State of Western Armenia consisted of the National Council of Western Armenia, of its government and of its parliament, officially raises him to the rank of a Just of the Armenian People.
