Eichmann Trial -- Sessions 6, 7 and 8 -- Hausner's opening statement

Film | Accession Number: 1999.A.0087 | RG Number: RG-60.2100.014 | Film ID: 2013

Sessions 6, 7 and 8. Attorney General Gideon Hausner discusses Adolf Hitler and his use of the Jews as scapegoats: "The Jew was the eternal scapegoat." Hausner notes the anti-Nazi movements in Germany, and German assistance to the Jews: "But after all is said and done, these were a small minority." The Prosecution describes Nazi tactics for the promotion of anti-Semitism such as economic boycotts, the Nuremberg Laws, and the yellow arm badges. Hausner starts Section 2 of his opening speech: "II - The SS, the SD and the Gestapo," which addresses the different groups of the Reich. Upon the completion of Section 2, the court adjourns for a recess. There are camera shots of the audience leaving the courtroom, and the screen fades to black.
