The 1961 trial of Adolf Eichmann held in an Israeli courtroom and broadcast around the globe was a benchmark event in the historiography of the Holocaust, especially in Israel where the trial proved a watershed experience for survivors and citizens of the new Jewish state. Employing new video and broadcast technologies, the trial was also a milestone in media and journalism coverage. From the producers of “Being Jewish in France” and “Einsatzgruppen,” this absorbing, comprehensive documentary features detailed accounts of Eichmann’s capture, the drama in the courtroom and behind the scenes, and reactions to the trial from around the world.

“Marvelous footage…the film gives audiences a chance to be at the trial. They will see portions of witness testimonies. I heard stories I had [not] yet heard about the Holocaust…A fascinating assemblage of interviews, footage, and analysis. It is highly recommended.” 
—Jewish Daily Forward
