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 became lead prosecutor in the Einsatzgruppen case at Nuremberg, which has been called the biggest murder trial in history. He was 27 years old and it was his first trial. 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.

 

Join us after the film for a facilitated Q-and-A with Scott Ference. Scott Ference is the nephew of Ben Ferencz. He grew up in Albany, New York. He is the father of 5 adult children and the proud papa of 8 grandchildren. For over thirty years Scott has been a teacher in Baltimore City working for the Home and Hospital Program. Presently, he works  with the children population at John’s Hopkins Hospital.
