This session offered an unprecedented and unique opportunity to hear the writers' children, Nathalie Babel, Shimon Markish and Evgeny Pasternak, discuss with writer and broadcaster Clive James their fathers’ enduring legacies. In an often moving encounter, they gave a unique insight into the lives and worlds of their parents, and explored the impact of their Jewish backgrounds on their individual fates. The session also featured actress Janet Suzman reading extracts from the works of all three authors.
