Summary
Law Not War is a moving portrait of the last surviving Chief Prosecutor of the Nuremberg Trials, 95-year-old Benjamin Ferencz. The film offers both a look back into history as well as an examination of current issues of war, justice and the International Criminal Court (ICC). From historic Court Room 600 in Nuremberg, Benjamin Ferencz relives his memories of the famous trials through intimate interviews, which are interwoven with historic film footage and statements from other international leaders in the field. Ferencz's life is defined by his remarkable journey from a poor, immigrant family in Hell's Kitchen, New York through Harvard Law School, to become Chief Prosecutor at the Nuremberg trials at the age of 27. At an age when most people's careers have not even begun, Ferencz was prosecuting the Einsatzgruppen, the group of Nazi soldiers who were known as death squads, and who were responsible for mass killings that took place during the Holocaust. After the Nuremberg Trials, Ferencz became a tireless fighter for the ideals that they represented. He devoted his life to the principle that war crimes should be prosecuted, and he worked relentlessly for the ICC to actualize that, despite the fact that the political climate during the Cold War was not favourable to his position. Ferencz still travels the world today, 70 years after the Nuremberg Trials, seeking both peace and justice for those who commit war crimes. 70 years later, his struggle is as relevant now as it was in 1945. As Ferencz himself says, "œWe have to turn to law instead of war. Or else we will destroy the whole world."
