Ben Ferencz

"This was the tragic fulfilment of a program of intolerance and arrogance," said Ferencz at the trial of 22 officers who led mobile paramilitary killing squads known as Einsatzgruppenthe. "Vengeance is not our goal, nor do we seek merely a just retribution. We ask this court to affirm by international penal action man's right to live in peace and dignity regardless of his race or creed. The case we present is a plea of humanity to law."

Ferencz notably condemned Berkeley Law John Yoo's "enhanced interrogation" program and "torture memos."
