Philippe Sands

This event has passed.

Philippe Sands’ book East West Street brings together powerful historical exploration and engrossing family memoir.

In this talk, Sands offers insights into the conflict and connections between three men at the heart of the Nuremberg trials – Cambridge academic Hersch Lauterpacht, Polish prosecutor Raphael Lemkin and Hitler’s lawyer Hans Frank.

He explores the origins of modern justice and the fate of individuals and groups, with excerpts of music by Bach, Beethoven, Rachmaninov, Misraki and Leonard Cohen performed by French jazz pianist Guillaume de Chassy.
