In this moving and gripping book, Philippe Sands sets off on a quest to uncover his own family’s painful past whilst investigating the origins of international human rights at the Nuremberg trial. Prompted by an invitation to deliver a lecture in the western Ukrainian city of Lviv, this book is both profoundly personal and unearths the universal truth behind the foundations of international law.
