Otto von Wächter was an indicted war criminal implicated in the deaths of thousands of Jews. So how can his son Horst refuse to condemn him? For several years the speaker has been researching a book on the origins of international criminal law and its connection with Lemberg. Horst, the son of Lemberg’s Nazi governor, Otto von Wächter, spoke to him about the legacy of the past.
The talk will be based on their conversations.
