Film | Accession Number: 1994.A.0037 | RG Number: RG-12.020.03

Final lecture in the 1986 series, Unitarian Forum, San Francisco. Practical Programs for Peace.
Benjamin Ferencz speaks about the evolution of the concept of world law, the role of the US constitution at Nuremberg, using law as the instrument for protection of peace, and what people can do today to effect peace. Ferencz emphasizes the need for social justice. He indicates law, courts, and enforcement as critical to the peace process. Responding to a question near the end of the session, Ferencz says, "It's my conviction that if humankind has the intelligence to develop the means of destroying humankind, surely we must have the intelligence to develop the means of preventing it from happening."
