Ferencz lecture for Pat Gross of BBC

Film | Accession Number: 1994.A.0037 | RG Number: RG-12.021.21

Ferencz delivers a private lecture to Pat Gross of BBC. He discusses the precedents created during the Nuremberg Trials: 1) aggression is a crime against peace; 2) crimes against humanity, those that literally shock the conscience of humankind; 3) war crimes, codified in the Hague (1885-1907) and accepted at Nuremberg. Ferencz expresses concern that these principles, that were intended to bring about rational law and order, have been ignored. Aggression continues, genocide continues, and war crimes prevail at all sides. Ferencz urges that we move towards a more rational and humane society through interdependence, respect, and international law.
