I’VE BEEN READING
Philippe Sands’ East West Street is a true story taking me close to my family roots. It describes the intellectual evolution of two brilliant Jewish legal minds, Hersch Lauterpacht and Raphael Lemkin. Both studied law in Lvov in Poland. In 1938, my parents fled Tarnapol, a small town near Lvov.
