A Call for Peace

In these turbulent times we dearly miss Ben Ferencz, who died earlier this year at 103. Ben was a life-long human rights defender and a Nuremberg prosecutor who never stopped advocating for peace. He said: 

“If it’s naive to want peace instead of war, better make sure they call me naive. Because I want peace instead of war. If they tell me they want war instead of peace I don’t see they’re naive, I see they’re stupid; stupid to an incredible degree to send young people out to kill other young people they don’t even know, who never did anybody any harm…I am naive?! That’s insane.”

As a human rights media organization, we go forward with Ben’s values in mind.

Above, Ben Ferencz is interviewed in 2007 as part of our film The Reckoning, with an image of him prosecuting a case at the Nuremberg Trials in 1947.
