The chapter examines the evolution and efficacy of the prosecutor as an author of anti-genocide narrative. It focuses on the work and statements of prosecutors Telford Taylor (Nuremberg) and Benjamin Ferencz (the Einsatzgruppen Trial of 1947–1948) and Serge Brammertz at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) (Radovan Karadžić). The chapter traces the intergenerational legacy narratives of the Nuremberg Military Tribunal for ICTY prosecutors. It examines areas such as the presentation of criminal wrongdoing, victim testimony, and societal extremes. It explores in what ways and to what extent prosecutors’ anti-genocide narratives have contributed to the pursuit of reconciliation in regions with governments and political groups that are resistant to reparations and victims’ justice movements.
