Dr Des Fitzgerald, President UL, together with the UL Sanctuary Committee are pleased to announce the University of Limerick’s Sanctuary Seminar Series Inaugural Lecture.
 
EAST WEST STREET: ON THE ORIGINS OF GENOCIDE AND CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY - THEN AND NOW
By Philippe Sands QC, Author and Professor of Law at University College London
 
 
In this lecture Lawyer and writer Philippe Sands QC explores how personal lives and history are interwoven. Drawing from his prize-winning book - part historical detective story, part family history, part legal thriller, winner of the 2016 Ballie Gifford (Samuel Johnson) Prize – he explains the connections between his work on 'crimes against humanity' and 'genocide', the events that overwhelmed his refugee family during the Second World War, and an untold story at the heart of the Nuremberg Trial.
