We need your support to complete
'The Human's in the Telling.'
The Humans In The Telling is a story sharing our family tale to encourage others to share theirs.
There are many ways to tell a story and we are working on a film, podcast, recording & book to reach out to as many people, in as many media as possible, leading up to the 75th anniversary of the Nuremberg Trials and 70th of The European Convention in 2020.
'To have a new vision of the future, it has always first been necessary to have a new vision of the past' Theodore Zeldin
Ours is a family story, that tells of the journey
of our great grandfather, David Maxwell Fyfe, from Nuremberg to Strasbourg. His
noted cross-examinations of leading Nazis at the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials,
led directly to his involvement in the creation of the European Convention on
Human Rights, protecting rights and freedoms after the horrors committed during
the Second World War.
It centres on a song cycle, Dreams of Peace & Freedom alongside our discovery of David Maxwell Fyfe's life and work, inspiring people to remember the stories of the past and to learn its lessons to shape the future.
DIFFERENT WAYS TO DISCOVER OUR STORY
We have shot a FILM - Told through the lens of history, it immerses you in our story, uncovering layers of letters, archive and the 7 places that made Maxwell Fyfe who he was.

We need your support to finish our film, book and podcast, to tell our story for future generations so that they can relive the past and own their history.

Helena Kennedy said that in relation to human rights 'the human is in the asking.'
But we believe the human is in the telling.
