EAST WEST STREET - A Song of Good & Evil
Philippe Sands' EAST WEST STREET - A Song of Good and Evil offers new insights into the conflict and connections between three men at the heart of the Nuremberg trial – Cambridge academic Hersch Lauterpacht, Polish prosecutor Raphael Lemkin, and Hitler's lawyer Hans Frank – who had a shared passion for music. This performance took place and was filmed on the 70th anniversary of the Nuremberg trial commencement in Courtroom 600 where the trials took place...
Inspired by international human rights lawyer Philippe Sands’ award-winning best-seller East West Street this partly staged reading explores the origins of ‘genocide’ and ‘crimes against humanity’ and the path to justice and The Ratline the sequel.
The performance focuses on the lives and ideas of three individuals from the Nuremberg Trial: academic Hersch Lauterpacht, prosecutor Raphael Lemkin and Hitler's lawyer Hans Frank, and the music that connected men on opposite sides of the courtroom.
Narrated by award-winning German actress Katja Riemann and author Philippe Sands. Leading bass-baritone Laurent Naouri and renowned jazz pianist Guillaume de Chassy perform music from Bach to Beethoven, Rachmaninov to Leonard Cohen.
