  • David Taub Reel Upstanders Film Series Presents a Screening of “Prosecuting Evil: The Extraordinary World of Ben Ferencz

    Join HMTC for a film screening of the documentary Prosecuting Evil: The Extraordinary World of Ben Ferencz

    Sunday, October 6, 2019 at 1:00 PM

    Barry Avrich’s gripping new documentary 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. He was 27 years old and it was his first trial. All 22 Nazi officials tried for murdering over a million people were convicted. Ferencz went on to advocate for restitution for Jewish victims of the Holocaust and later for the establishment of the International Criminal Court. His fight for justice for victims of atrocity crimes continues today.

    We will be joined by John Q. Barrett, a Professor of Law at St. John’s University in New York City, where he teaches Constitutional Law, Criminal Procedure, and Legal History.  He also is the Elizabeth S. Lenna Fellow and a Board member at the Robert H. Jackson Center in Jamestown, New York. He is the author of many articles and lectures on both the national and international scene about Robert H. Jackson (1892-1954) who was a U.S. Supreme Court Justice and Nuremberg chief prosecutor.

    $10 suggested donation; light refreshments will be served.  Pleas RSVP to (516)571-8040 or info@hmtcli.org

    David Taub Reel Upstanders Film Series 

    presents

    a screening of the documentary film 

    Equal Means Equal 

    The Equal Rights Amendment in the U.S.
    Where are we?
    Why isn’t it law yet?
    What are we to do about it?

    Special Guest Speaker: 
    Renaire Frierson,
    former Deputy Mayor, incorporated village of Freeport and former counsel, Executive Director at Nassau County Commission on Human Rights

    Welwyn Preserve, 100 Crescent Beach Road
    Glen Cove, NY 11542

    Equal Means Equal offers an unflinching look at how women are treated in the United States today. Examining both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez uncovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the foster care system, and the healthcare conglomerate to the judicial system. Along the way, she reveals the inadequacy of present laws that claim to protect women, ultimately presenting a compelling and persuasive argument for the urgency of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment.

    The David Taub Reel Upstanders Film Series was established in honor of David Taub (1932-2010), a Holocaust Survivor and respected friend of the Center.

    Light refreshments will be served. Suggested donation of $10 to attend. RSVP to (516) 571-8040 or info@hmtcli.org.
