Facing the Past in Lviv: Philippe Sands talks to Anna Reid about his book "East West Street." 27 September 2017
Full house for an incredible evening with Philippe Sands at the Ukrainian Institute, London, 27-09-2017. A journey into an uneasy past in Lviv, inextricably linked to the present. Key takeaways: - there's a huge amount of goodwill in Ukraine to face its complex past, especially among the young and this is very visible in Lviv; - in a difficult dialogue between communities it's important the best does not kill the good; - Ukraine is not alone in facing difficult pages of its history - other countries, including the UK, have plenty of homework to do; - we should not get dispirited about imperfections of the international law. Many thanks to Anna Reid for the crisp moderating.
