Human Rights Watch Leader Proudly Recalls that One of the Events Which Decided His Path Was a Sense of Awe of France's Communist Party

In Le Monde's portrait of the new Human Rights Watch director of its European bureau, Jean-Pierre Stroobants mentions the two decisive events that put a young Reed Brody on the path to become a "hunter of dictators".

Fête de l'Huma during an initial stay in France.
