The Mizel Museum will present a community-wide film screening of the critically acclaimed documentary Prosecuting Evil: The Extraordinary World of Ben Ferencz on Tuesday, March 19 at the Sie FilmCenter at 7:00 p.m. as part of the museum’s Movies that Matter film 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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call 720-785-7300.
