“East West Street. On the Origins of Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity.” by Phillipe Sands
“East West Street” is a really interesting and revealing book by Phillipe Sands, which consists of two main stories: the first one is Sands’ personal family story and about the lives of his Jewish relatives before, during and after the Holocaust. The second story is about the beginnings of international law in context of the Holocaust and how it formed our modern understanding of human rights.
