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.
