May 6th Screening of Prosecuting Evil
The Extraordinary World of Ben Ferencz

The Extraordinary World of Ben Ferencz 7:00 pm at Harkins Shea 14

Special guest: Introduction by Steven Ference, Ben's nephew Post-screening discussion and question and answer & answer session with Maricopa County Judge The Honorable Wendy Morton.

This 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 Nuremburg, 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 crime continues today.
