East West Street

Philippe Sands

In East West Street (2016) Philippe Sands tells how 2 Jewish men came up with the terms "crimes against humanity" and "genocide" which were then used in the 1945-1946 Nuremberg trials.

Along the way, we find out that Philippe’s grandfather was in kinship care as a teenager for several years after WWI, and his mother, born in 1938, was taken from Vienna to Paris in 1939 by a stranger, a woman who was determined to save Jewish babies.
