Benjamin B. Ferencz to be Awarded Congressional Gold Medal

Congratulations to Benjamin B. Ferencz, the last living Nuremberg prosecutor, who will be awarded the Congressional Gold Medal. The award is Congress’s highest honor, and was granted via a bill of bipartisan support.

Ferencz participated in the founding of our Whitney R. Harris World Law Institute in 2001 and was also awarded WashULaw’s “World Peace Through Law Award” at a special reception in his honor, which took place at the Missouri History Museum in 2015.
