Ferencz interviewed by Fred Fiske

Film | Accession Number: 1994.A.0037 | RG Number: RG-12.021.05

Radio interview with Benjamin Ferencz. Host: Fred Fiske. WAMU-FM 88.5
Ferencz argues that war criminals should continue to be prosecuted today to indicate revulsion of the crimes committed. He mentions repeatedly that we need to remember man's inhumanity to man. He discusses the Kurt Waldheim controversy, the problems in selecting defendents for his trial at Nuremberg, and slave labor in German big business. He regards laws, courts, and a system of effective enforcement as necessary to achieve a peaceful world. Ferencz stresses that all genocidal acts should be condemned in an international criminal court giving defendents the opportunity for a fair trial.
