Film Screenings at 4:00pm and 7:00pm Holocaust Memorial Day in the US will be on Wednesday, May 1. Accordingly, on Sunday, April 28, a group of sponsors are presenting two recent documentary films: A Night at the Garden, and Prosecuting Evil: The Extraordinary World of Ben Ferencz.
A Night at the Garden is a 7-minute film made entirely from archival footage. It transports audiences to a 1939 rally at Madison Square Garden where 20,000 Americans gathered to celebrate the rise of Nazism – a largely forgotten moment in American history.
Prosecuting Evil This film tells the fascinating story of Ben Ferencz—the last surviving Nuremberg prosecutor and lifelong advocate of “law not war.” After witnessing Nazi concentration camps shortly after liberation, Ferencz became lead prosecutor in the Einsatzgruppen case at Nuremberg, which has been called the biggest murder trial in history. His fight for justice for victims of atrocity crimes continues today. Sponsored by: the University of Idaho College of Law, the UI Department of Modern Languages and Cultures, the WSU Department of History, and the WSU Emeritus Society. Film screenings will take place at 4:00pm and 6:00pm.
