Details

Barry Avrich’s gripping new documentary tells the fascinating story of Ben Ferencz — the last surviving Nuremberg prosecutor and lifelong advocate of “law not war.” After witnessing Nazi concentration camps shortly after liberation, Ferencz, at age 27, became lead prosecutor in the Einsatzgruppen Trial at Nuremberg, which has been called the biggest murder trial in history. All 22 Nazi officials tried for murdering over a million people were convicted. Ferencz went on to advocate for restitution for Jewish victims of the Holocaust and later for the establishment of the International Criminal Court. His fight for justice for victims of atrocity crimes continues today.
