In Pursuit of Justice

Premieres on 19 May at 7pm, on Charleston’s YouTube channel

International human rights lawyer and author Philippe Sands discusses ‘the ratlines’ — a system of escape routes for Nazis and other fascists fleeing Europe in the aftermath of World War II — and his personal quest to unearth the story of the man who presided over the murder of hundreds of thousands of Jews and Poles, including Sands’ own family.

Based on Sands’ smash-hit podcast, ‘The Ratline’ is a historical detective story that uncovers the fate of the Nazi Governor of Galicia who went on the run after his post-war indictment for mass murder.

Philippe Sands discusses the meaning of justice and evil with author and academic Eva Hoffman, whose parents survived the Holocaust in hiding.
