East West Street: Waterstones Reading the 21st Century

Autor Philippe Sands
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 20 apr 2017

When human rights lawyer Philippe Sands received an invitation to deliver a lecture in the Ukrainian city of Lviv, he began to uncover a series of extraordinary historical coincidences. It set him on a quest that would take him halfway around the world in an exploration of the origins of international law and the pursuit of his own secret family history, beginning and ending with the last day of the Nuremberg trial. Part historical detective story, part family history, part legal thriller, EAST WEST STREET is a powerful meditation on the way memory, crime and guilt leave scars across generations, and the haunting gaps left by the secrets of others.
