“Prosecuting Evil: The Extraordinary Life of Ben Ferencz” Film Screening with the Mizel Museum
March 19, 2019
The Mizel Museum will present a community-wide film screening of Prosecuting Evil on March 19 at the Sie FilmCenter at 7:00 pm as part of the museum’s Movies that Matter series.
Prosecuting Evil tells the 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 chief prosecutor in the Einsatzgruppen – SS death squads – case at Nuremberg, known as the biggest murder trial in history. He was just 27, and it was his first trial. Since then, he has dedicated his life to fighting for justice for victims of atrocities.
“The Mizel Museum is proud to screen this gripping new documentary,” said Georgina Kolber, Mizel Museum managing director. “Audiences will be inspired by Ben’s remarkable story, which demonstrates his fearless pursuit of justice and commitment to humanity. Given the acts of hatred and bigotry we are seeing in the world today, this film couldn’t be more relevant and timely.”
A post-film discussion featuring Scott Levin, regional director of ADL Mountain States, will examine the impact of the Nuremberg trials and the ability of the criminal justice system to address present-day racism and anti-Semitism.
Prosecuting Evil tickets are on sale now at www.mizelmuseum.org/events. For more information email email@example.com or call 720-785-7300.
