Location Facebook Live
Date Wed, Nov 18, 9:30am - 10:30am
Duration   1h

At age 27, in his first turn as a prosecutor, Benjamin Ferencz led what has been called "the biggest murder trial in history." On behalf of the US government, he won guilty verdicts against 22 Nazi leaders of mass shooting operations that murdered over a million Jews.

The Nuremberg trials aimed to achieve a measure of justice for the unimaginable scale of the Holocaust and war crimes. Ben, now 100, has devoted his life to building the architecture of international justice around prevention and accountability in pursuit of a more peaceful world.

Join the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum live on Facebook, 75 years after the Nuremberg trials began, to learn Ben's inspiring story and why his motto is: “Never give up.”
