Just watched an amazing new documentary on Ben Ferencz. What a human treasure.

From Wikipedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Ferencz

Benjamin Berell Ferencz (born March 11, 1920)[1][2][3][4] is a Romanian-born American lawyer. He was an investigator of Nazi war crimes after World War II and the Chief Prosecutor for the United States Army at the Einsatzgruppen Trial, one of the twelve military trials held by the U.S. authorities at Nuremberg, Germany. Later, he became an advocate of the establishment of an international rule of law and of an International Criminal Court. From 1985 to 1996, he was Adjunct Professor of International Law at Pace University.

The movie is streaming on Netflix - it is called Prosecuting Evil.

This 99 year old treasure is as honorable and relevant and special as our current "president" is a piece of garbage, a total waste of breathable air. Complete polar opposites. The movie also makes one pause about the recent hubris of our country and many of its decisions.

4. I just saw it a couple of days ago.

He was extraordinary. Itís amazing that he had never litigated a case before the Nuremberg trial. Iím so glad I saw it. A true hero!

I also found out what happened to all the other Nazi criminals. Itís unbelievable that they werenít tried. Yet some have been caught and tried by Israelis.
