To Kill the Truth
Chair: Matthew D'Ancona
Acclaimed journalist Jonathan Freedland presents a gripping new thriller, the latest from his blockbuster novelist alter ego Sam Bourne. Somebody is murdering the world’s last remaining Holocaust survivors; libraries are burnt to the ground and important digital archives are wiped. Somebody is setting out to erase the past, even to destroy the truth itself. But who? Jonathan discusses the inspiration behind the novel – including his experience covering the David Irving trial – in conversation with Matthew d’Ancona, author of Post-Truth.
