It is not often you get the chance to meet a man who holds a place in
history like Ben Ferencz.  He's 97 years old, barely 5 feet tall, and
he served as prosecutor of what's been called the biggest murder trial
ever. The courtroom was Nuremberg; the crime, genocide; the defendants, a
group of German SS officers accused of committing the largest number of
Nazi killings outside the concentration camps -- more than a million
men, women, and children shot down in their own towns and villages in
cold blood.
Ferencz is the last Nuremberg prosecutor alive today. But he isn't content just to be part of 20th century history -- he believes he has something important to offer the world right now.

Thanks for posting this.   "War makes murderers out of otherwise decent people. All wars, and all decent people."

A truth not often spoken, but a truth just the same.
