Summary

Join the Virginia Holocaust Museum and the Virginia Law Foundation for for a showing of the film, "Prosecuting Evil: the Extraordinary World of Ben Ferencz." 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." 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.
