When I worked at the United Nations, it was a great pleasure to meet
Benjamin Ferencz and be the producer behind these series of five lectures:

Criminal Law and Procedure

International Criminal Law

In a series of lectures entitled "The Evolution of International Law - A
Personal Account", Benjamin B. Ferencz describes his personal experiences
and conclusions over more than half a century trying to replace the law of
force by the force of law. As part of a comprehensive historical review, he
describes the little-known trials by military commissions that preceded the
International Military Tribunal and the dozen subsequent trials at
Nuremberg where other leading perpetrators were held accountable. Ferencz
describes the unprecedented efforts thereafter to obtain restitution and
compensation for victims. Deterring illegal war-making -- the crime of
aggression -- became his primary goal and produced many scholarly books and
countless articles. His lectures around the world in support of the
International Criminal Court and his determined optimism remain a
continuing inspiration.
