robert rinder (in the who do you think you are series)
“Robert ‘Judge’ Rinder follows the story of his grandfather, Moses Malinicky, a Holocaust survivor, hearing first-hand testimony of the horror of Nazi forced labour camps as well as of the hope offered by a new life in Lake Windermere.
Investigating the dark mystery surrounding his great-grandfather Israel Medalyer leads Robert to Talsi, a small town in Latvia, where he uncovers a story of mental illness and trauma which will ultimately, he hopes, lay some ghosts to rest.”
