Ferencz shares wisdom during visit to the Ikeda Center

Benjamin Ferencz is the only surviving prosecutor from the Nuremberg trials, which, soon after the conclusion of WWII, held Nazi leaders to account for war crimes and crimes against humanity perpetrated during the war. Specifically, Mr. Ferencz was the Chief Prosecutor of the Einsatzgruppen case, in which 22 high-ranking Nazis were convicted of slaughtering over a million innocent men, women, and children. Just 27 years old at the time, Ferencz was named to prosecute this case since it resulted from facts he unearthed as part of the fifty-person team charged by the US after the war with investigating Nazi crimes, including genocide.
