At Hatchards, Piccadilly, to celebrate the paperback publication of his book Letters to Camondo, de Waal discussed his exploration of the Camondos’ lavish rooms and detailed archives which led him to write this haunting series of letters to the Count, reflecting on the events that so scarred 20th-century Europe.
