In this Humankind documentary, we explore the history of courts set up to enforce the rule of law to protect innocent men, women and children. And we examine events around the founding of the International Criminal Court (ICC) — considered a milestone for the rule of law, which incorporates the rights of women among other new protections for civilians. In The Rights of Civilians:  Investigating War Crimes, you'll hear from: 

Linda Thomas-Greenfield, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.
• The late Walter Cronkite who describes his emotions as Nazi leaders entered the Nuremberg Tribunal
Benjamin Ferencz, now age 102 and the last surviving Nuremberg prosecutor, reconstructs the amazing history.
