East West Street looks at the personal and intellectual evolution of the two men who simultaneously originated the ideas of ٢genocide٣ and ٢crimes against humanity,٣ both of whom, not knowing the other, studied at the same university with the same professors, in a city little known today that was a major cultural center of Europe, ٢the little Paris of Ukraine,٣ a city variously called Lemberg, Lwów, Lvov, or Lviv.
