Ben Ferencz Interview

Ben Ferencz was the prosecutor of the famous Einsatzgruppen trial, one of the post-war prosecutions organised by US military tribunals. Here's a recent interview with Ben: http://www.pbs.org/pov/reckoning/interview_ferencz.php. And if you want to read the judgment, and the trial proceedings, see: http://www.loc.gov/rr/frd/Military_Law/pdf/NT_war-criminals_Vol-IV.pdf. There is a new book on the case: Hilary Earl, The Nuremberg SS-Einsatzgruppen Trial, 1945–1958
Atrocity, Law, and History, New York: Cambridge University Press, 2009: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521456081&ss=fro. The picture,which I took last year, shows the Nuremberg courtroom where Ben argued the case.
