The Father: A Revenge

Niklas Frank, Philippe Sands

Jewish Book Week

Niklas Frank on his Nazi war criminal father, with Philippe Sands.

Niklas Frank was just seven when his father Hans Frank, Hitler’s legal adviser and governor general of occupied Poland, was executed at Nuremberg as a Nazi war criminal.

In the decades since he has attempted to come to terms with the enormity of the horror unleashed; The Father: A Revenge is an extraordinary account of a scarred son struggling to comprehend the depravity of the acts that were committed by his father. Whereas other descendants of Hitler’s henchmen and co-collaborators have tried to explain or to forget the crimes of their forebears, Niklas’s disgust is unremitting. In conversation with Philippe Sands, author of The Ratline and East West Street.

In Association with the TLS

Niklas Frank is a journalist and author. He was a reporter for Stern for over two decades and is the author of three books about his family, Der Vater, Meine Deutsche Mutter and Bruder Norman. He was born in 1939.

Philippe Sands QC is Professor of International Law at UCL and a practising barrister. His book, East West Street: On the Origins of Crimes Against Humanity, won the Baillie Gifford Prize.
