Prosecuting Evil” Showing at BIFF

We are excited to have the film “Prosecuting Evil showing at this year’s Boulder International Film Festival! At 98 years old, Ben Ferencz is the last living lead prosecutor at The Nuremberg Trials and remains an unstoppable force for justice in the world.

As an Army gunner in World War II, he was assigned as an investigator to help liberate the Nazi death camps which, according to his son Don Ferencz, “lit a nuclear fire in the belly of this man.” Already a lawyer, he was appointed by the Army, at the age of 27, to be chief prosecutor for the US Army at the Einsatzgruppen Trials at Nuremberg, where he gave such an impassioned opening statement that it was seen worldwide in movie newsreels​.

This film will have one showing, at 10:00 am on Friday, March 1st at the First Presbyterian Church. Learn more about his amazing journey to liberate the World War II Nazi camps in the film and buy tickets at: https://biff1.com/biff-2019/prosecuting-evil/
