East West Street looks at the personal and intellectual evolution of the two men who simultaneously originated the ideas of “genocide” and “crimes against humanity,” both of whom, not knowing the other, studied at the same university with the same professors, in a city little known today that was a major cultural center of Europe, “the little Paris of Ukraine,” a city variously called Lemberg, Lwów, Lvov, or Lviv.

This excellent book is part family memoir, part detective story, and mostly a history of the development of the modern concepts of international courts and accountability following WW II. It raises interesting questions about the ascendency of the idea of genocide. Highly recommended.

A compelling story and an impressive piece of research.

An extraordinary book. A tour de force of investigative journalism, history, legal scholarship and personal memoir. Sands impressed me both as a writer and as a human being. A must-read. I gave the book five stars but the library app doesn't reflect that.
