Benjamin Ferencz to be Honored Today at ASIL International Criminal Law IG Luncheon

Ben FerenczThe American Society of International Law, which is meeting this week in Washington, D.C., holds a special luncheon today to honor Benjamin Ferencz.  The event was organized by Professor Shahram Dana of The John Marshall Law School and the ASIL Interest Group for International Criminal Law.   

Ben was an investigator of Nazi war crimes after World War II and served as the Chief Prosecutor for the United States Army during the Einsatzgruppen Trial, which was one of the twelve military trials held by the U.S. authorities at Nuremberg, Germany.

Here's a link to a website that collects Ben's work -- everything from transcripts of the Nuremberg Trials to his most recent writings.
