Film | Accession Number: 1999.A.0087 | RG Number: RG-60.2100.007 | Film ID: 2006

Sessions 1 and 2. Begins during Session 1 as Attorney General Hausner is countering the Defense's assertion that the Israeli court lacks objectivity. There is a blip at 00:03:04 and the tape skips to Hausner discussing his agreement to accept affidavits from the Defense witnesses and forego his right to cross-examination. 00:05:19 There is another blip and the footage jumps to Session 2 as Hausner is reading international statutes as points of evidence for holding the Eichmann trial in Israel. 00:06:33 Another blip and the footage skips to Hausner discussing Eichmann's extradition from Argentina and its lack of relevance to the trial. Once again, Hausner's comments are interrupted by a blip in the editing at 00:09:17 and the film cuts to Hausner speaking on the relevance of the Defense's witnesses. There is a final blip at 00:10:19 and the tape ends.
