Former Chief Prosecutor for the United States in the Einsatzgruppen Case of the Nuremberg Trials

Benjamin B. Ferencz


It was as if I had peered into hell. That’s why I’m still fighting, to prevent that from happening again.”
– Benjamin B. Ferencz, on his encounters with the concentration camps of World War II
