The trial of Adolf Eichmann / directed by Michaël Prazan ; written by Michaël Prazan and Annette Wieviorka ; presented by the National Center for Jewish Film ; a Kuiv Production ; in cooperation with France Televisions, Planete and Planete Justices ; produced by Michel Rotman and Marie-Hélène Ranc.
Adolph Eichmann, who devised the "Final Solution," the attempt to exterminate the Jews, was the most hated of the Nazis. His 1961 trial, 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. This absorbing, comprehensive new 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 (as concentration camp survivors broke down giving their evidence, Eichmann sat impassive & protesting his innocence -- inside a bullet-proof glass booth).
