Ben Ferencz: International Law Must Deter Aggression
American Bar Association Section of International Law - Grand Hyatt
A conversation with Ben Ferencz, the sole surviving American who served as a prosecutor at the Nuremburg trials of Nazi war criminals on the evolution of international criminal law. Ferencz was Chief Prosecutor for the United States in The Einsatzgruppen Case, which the Associated Press called "the biggest murder trial in history." Twenty-two defendants were charged with - and convicted of - murdering over a million people. In addition to his wartime and Nuremburgexperiences, Ferencz will discuss Nuremburg's implications for the rule of law and the international criminal court."
