Robert ‘Judge’ Rin­der

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - NEW SERIES REVEALED -

Suc­cess­ful bar­ris­ter Robert ‘Judge’ Rin­der gets his nick­name from ITV’s re­al­ity court­room se­ries Judge Rin­der. He’s nifty on his feet too, com­ing fifth in the 2016 se­ries of Strictly Come Danc­ing. He started out want­ing to be an ac­tor, and Bene­dict Cum­ber­batch is a close friend.

Robert hails from a large Jewish fam­ily and re­gards his ma­ter­nal grand­mother, Lot­tie, as its “quiet cen­tre”. If only the fam­ily’s his­tory were so quiet. But it’s a story over which the Holo­caust and, ear­lier, rev­o­lu­tion looms large.

Be­gin­ning with the life of his grand­fa­ther, who en­dured time in Nazi con­cen­tra­tion camps, Robert learns about the fate of his rel­a­tives. Hap­pily, though, this is also a story of sur­vival. THEMES: the Holo­caust, Jewish records, men­tal ill­ness, the Sec­ond World War
