"Prosecuting Evil: The Extraordinary World of Ben Ferencz"

  • Harkins Shea 14 7354 East Shea Boulevard Scottsdale, AZ, 85260 United States (map)

Melbar Entertainment Group presents



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.

As part of the evening, Ben's nephew Steve Ference will speak about his uncle's experiences prior to the screening and Maricopa County's Superior Court Commissioner Wendy Morton will conduct a post-screening question-and-answer session with the audience.
