Hersch Lauterpacht: Hero of human rights
Published on 29 Nov 2019
Have you heard of the human rights hero Hersch Lauterpacht?
Hersch Lauterpacht was hired as a member of the British prosecution team during the Nuremberg trials, where he came up with the idea of Crimes Against Humanity. We invited Professor Philippe Sands to talk to us about Lauterpacht’s story, and his impact on what we know as human rights today.

EachOther is a UK-focused charity that uses independent journalism, story-telling and film-making to put the human into human rights. The digital content we produce is grounded in the lived experience of ordinary people affected by human rights issues. We involve them in the process of developing their stories, rather than talking for or over them. Theirs are the voices we platform and amplify to our lay audience of over a million viewers each year. In this way, we hope to grow public support for human rights here in the UK.
