Eichmann Trial -- Session 1 -- Defense alleges court's lack of authority

Film | Accession Number: 1999.A.0087 | RG Number: RG-60.2100.006 | Film ID: 2005

Session 1. Film ID 2005 is a combination of the end of Film ID 2001 and the bulk of Film ID 2002. Defense Attorney Dr. Robert Servatius states his first concern to the court. The defense suggests that an Israeli court lacks sufficient objectivity due to biases produced by the circumstances for which Eichmann is being tried. The defense claims that any judge with a personal connection to an individual(s) and/or event(s) involved in the Holocaust would be unable to maintain impartiality when making a decision on Eichmann's involvement. As Servatius begins to express his second concern, Judge Landau calls for a fifteen-minute recess. The tape ends as the crowd disperses.
