As such, he lived in Wawel Castle in Krakow while his father acted like the King of Poland and oversaw the mass execution of millions of Jews. In this extraordinary talk, he will discuss his father’s legacy and reveal his own thoughts, memories and attitudes towards his parents and the part they played in the Nazi reign of terror.
