Movie Info

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 was27 years old and it was his first trial. All 22 Nazi officials tried for murdering over a million peoplewere 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.

Critic Reviews for Prosecuting Evil: The Extraordinary World of Ben Ferencz

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (18)

  • Self-aware, funny and articulate, blessed with a first-class temperament, Ferencz is front and center telling his own tale, which includes being the key player in what's been called the biggest murder trial in history.

    February 28, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The film ... places Ferencz on a high pedestal, complete with rapturous commentary on his influence and impact from colleagues and family, but the man has undeniably earned it.

    February 22, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Ferencz's deeply hopeful message of peace shines through as brightly as his spirit.

    February 22, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Ferencz... comes across as thoughtful, principled and engaging in a film that, in keeping with his demeanor, is a modest profile rather than a sprawling portrait.

    February 21, 2019 | Full Review…
  • His energy never seems to flag, in a film that pays full tribute to him - while also sounding the alarm that his work is more urgent than ever.

    November 29, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Though humble in terms of production, the straightforward doc contains enough dramatic anecdotes (and, we're required to add, sufficient relevance to current events) that it merits screening outside educational settings.
