Sie prägten die zentralen Begriffe, mit denen seitdem der Schrecken benannt und geahndet werden kann: "Verbrechen gegen die Menschlichkeit" und "Genozid". Meisterhaft verwebt Philippe Sands die Geschichte von Tätern und Anklägern, von Strafe und Völkerrecht zu einer kraftvollen Erzählung darüber, wie Verbrechen und Schuld über Generationen fortwirken.

A bordo do navio Valk, os judeus sonhavam em voltar
para a terra natal. Uma tempestade desviou-os do caminho e o navio acabou sendo saqueado por piratas espanhóis.
O grupo foi socorrido por uma fragata francesa que lutou contra os piratas e resgatou a tripulação. Como tinham outro rumo, os franceses deixaram o grupo na Jamaica, então colônia espanhola. Depois de ficarem presos por algum pace, os judeus foram libertados graças à intervenção do governo holandês. Por motivos financeiros, acabaram seguindo para um destino mais próximo do que a Europa: a colônia holandesa de Nova Amsterdã.
