Just as his vocation for the defense of human rights is intertwined with his own family history, which extends to the Holocaust during Nazism in Germany. As a judge of the courts of the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda he heard thousands of testimonies about the horror of war crimes and his concern is to be alert to the slightest signs of “reification of the neighbor,” as he defines it, because there appears the germ of A future crime against humanity.
