This article was published by Lemkin in the monthly “Palestra”. Not long after that he published a book entitled Sędzia w obliczu nowoczesnego prawa karnego i kryminologii (Judge in the face of the modern criminal law and criminology) (Institute of Criminology Press, Free University of Poland). This article is redacted with a small interference into the original text.
