Supreme Court of Canada Justice Rosalie Abella, Honourary Co-Chair of the Raoul Wallenberg Centre for Human Rights, was recently featured in the Globe&Mail. The very moving profile describes the generational underpinnings of Justice Abella's lifelong commitment to the pursuit of justice, and her visit to Poland as Part of her participation in the Nuremberg Legal Symposium.
"He was born in a refugee camp in Stuttgart, just over two hours from Nuremberg, where Nazi war criminals were being brought to justice. And now, 70 years later, Justice Rosalie Abella of the Supreme Court of Canada has come back to the place where her father began his own legal career – Jagiellonian University in Krakow – to give a keynote address on the Nuremberg trials, which brought to light the magnitude of what the Nazis did. And she has not slept all night. This will be the speech of her life."
"Doing justice to her father’s dream"
