Human rights lawyer, Philippe Sands’ search for the origins of genocide and crimes against humanity became a personal quest for truth about his own family history.  His documentary film My Nazi legacy: what our fathers did released in November 2015, uncovered events that devastated his mother’s family in Poland and Austria during WW2.  East West Street part detective story, part legal thriller, published in May, explores the motives of the perpetrators through the critical eyes of their two sons.

He talks to Rabbi Jonathan Wittenberg.
