A Holocaust mass murderer on the run, an international race to bring him to justice ... this is the compelling background to Philippe Sands' part memoir, part detective story The Ratline. Fugitive Brigadeführer Otto von Wächter, responsible for the murders of hundreds of thousands of Jews in Poland – including Sands’ grandfather and other family members – came tantalisingly close to evading retribution. He is in conversation with Claire Berliner, writer, editor and Programme Manager at The London Library, formerly Literature Programmer at JW3.
