East West Street: Personal Stories of International Crime

Human rights lawyer and writer Philippe Sands QC explores how personal lives and history are interwoven. Drawing from his new book – part historical detective story, part family history, part legal thriller, winner of the 2016 Ballie Gifford (Samuel Johnson) Prize – he explains the connections between his work on 'crimes against humanity' and 'genocide', the events that overwhelmed his family during the Second World War, and an untold story at the heart of the Nuremberg Trial.
