Filmmaker Philippe Sands, who lost members of his family during the Holocaust, challenges their common history and relationship to their fathers’ sins.

The film is followed by an interview between Professor Cecilia Bailliet and Philippe, and then a four person panel with a Q&A for the audience.

Philippe Sands is a Professor of Law at the University College London. He is a barrister for Matrix Chambers in London and has appeared before many international courts, including the European Court of Justice, the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Court, and the Special Court for Sierra Leone.

The film draws on the book "East West Street: On the Origins of Genocide and Crimes against Humanity" -  written by Philippe Sands. In the conversation following the film, Sands will discuss both projects. The panel, which consists  of Hans Petter Graver, Irene Levin and Bjørn Westlie and moderated by Geir Ulfstein, will discuss the relevance in the Norwegian context.
