 East West Street
 
A Talk by Philippe Sands followed by a Discussion with Douglas Irvin-Erikson
 
Venue: ( Center for Jewish History)
Center for Jewish History
Producer: ( American Jewish Historical Society)
American Jewish Historical Society
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Featuring remarkable materials drawn directly from the AJHS archive, human-rights lawyer and author Philippe Sands will explore how personal lives and history are interwoven in his book East West Street, which received the 2016 Baillie Gifford (formerly Samuel Johnson) prize for nonfiction. The story – part family history and part legal thriller – connects to Sands work on crimes against humanity and genocide as well as to an untold story at the heart of the Nuremberg Trial that pitted lawyers Raphael Lemkin and Hersch Lauterpacht against Adolf Hitlers former lawyer – Hans Frank.

A conversation with Douglas Irvin-Erikson, author of Raphäel Lemkin and the Concept of Genocide, will follow and focus on the consequences of the concept of genocide from the Armenian killings of 1915 – which inspired Lemkins work – to the atrocities perpetrated on the Yazidi community a century later.
