Abstract

Judge Manfred Lachs and His Role in International Adjudication Karolina Wierczyska* I am honoured to present to you Manfred Lachs, one of the most famous Polish jurists in international law. He easily ranks among such great Polish legal scholars as Rafael Lemkin, who coined the word genocide, or the great diplomat Krzysztof Skubiszewski. Manfred Lachs was born1 in 1914, in Stanislawów in Galicia, which was then a part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. When World War I ended, the town was within the borders of newly independent Poland (and later incorporated into the Soviet Union, while today it is Ivano-Frankovsk in Ukraine). Lachs studied at the Jagiellonian University of Cracow where he received a Master of Laws, and in 1937 a Doctorate of Laws. Two years later he also received a Doctorate at the University of Nancy in France. Lachs also studied at the London School of Economics.2 When the World War II started he was happily abroad, happily because all his family who stayed in Poland were murdered during the Holocaust. His first book, published in 1945, focused on the issue of war crimes, and it was during this period that he started his international career. Not long
