Washington - The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum says the last surviving prosecutor of the Nuremberg trials has donated $1 million to the museum’s genocide prevention center.


The museum announced Wednesday that Ben Ferencz will donate $1 million to the Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide. The annual gift is renewable for up to $10 million.

Now 96 and living in Delray Beach, Florida, Ferencz was the chief U.S. prosecutor in the Einsatzgruppen case, which tried 22 leaders of the killing units of the Nazis’ SS troops.

Ferencz has dedicated his life since then to the creation of the International Criminal Court, which could prosecute any government’s leaders for war crimes. The U.S. has not signed on.

Now that's how you make a statement, not by protesting the national anthem. Kudos to him for putting his money where his mouth is. Hopefully, that ingrate quarterback from San Francisco can learn from him.
