Chapter Summary

This is the concluding chapter of the book The Struggle against Enforced Disappearance and the 2007 United Nations Convention. The book deals with the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance and its main legal issues. The Convention recognizes the new human right of any person not to be subjected to enforced disappearance. It also recognizes and guarantees the human right to know the truth. The relatives of the victims of disappearance, as well as society as a whole, call for the disclosure of the fate and whereabouts of those who have disappeared. It is a truth that must be known, circulated and not forgotten. Only the truth can avoid impunity and the repetition of the scourge. Only the full knowledge and remembrance of the truth together with justice can prevent other people from following the path taken by Hitler, Keitel and too many others.

Keywords: 2007 United Nations Convention; enforced disappearance; Hitler; human rights; Keitel
