    Eichmann Trial -- Session 112 -- Hausner sums up

    Overview

    Description
    Session 112. Hausner talks about group responsibility in crimes. Eichmann as a man who didn't take orders. Discusses whose responsibility it was for the extermination of the Jews, and the legality of murder and persecution as a result of law changes. 00:06:59 Asks why did they camouflage what was happening if it was legal.

    00:08:49 Jumps to Hausner speaking about everyone's guilt within the "nerve center of the Gestapo" on condition that they knew what was happening and remained in Gestapo center after realizing what the purpose was. Eichmann, admitted himself that he knew of the order of the extermination of the Jews - he was caught in the net of criminal conspiracy.

    00:10:15 Another argument which may crop up - claim of the "Act of State" - if an individual act on behalf of one state damages another state then the damaged state may ask that the other state gives compensation - the individual does not suffer the consequences. But when order exceeds boundary of law it does not count - therefore the offenders carry personal criminal responsibility. Reads from pamphlet.

    00:16:27 Session ends, court adjourns.

    Film Provenance
    Capital Cities Broadcasting Corporation recorded the proceedings of the Adolf Eichmann trial in 1961. The original recording was made on two-inch format videotape. One set of videotapes contained selected portions of the trial for distribution to television stations. The "selected portions" version remained in Israel and was later turned over to the Israel State Archives. Capital Cities Broadcasting retained the set of videotapes containing the complete trial proceedings at offices in New York City until 1965, when they gave the videotapes to the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith. The Anti-Defamation League, in turn, gave the complete set to the Steven Spielberg Jewish Film Archive at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 1972. With a grant from the Revson Foundation, Hebrew University transferred the two-inch videotapes to U-Matic format. During the transfer process, Hebrew University created three duplicate sets. One set was given to the Steven Spielberg Jewish Film Archive, one to the Israel State Archives, and one set to the Jewish Museum in New York City. In 1995, the Israel State Archives transferred the trial footage to digital videoformat with a grant from the Israeli Prime Minister's Office. Three subsequent digital videotape copies resulted from this transfer of footage. The Israel State Archives retained one digital copy and a second set was deposited at the Steven Spielberg Jewish Film Archive at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The Steven Spielberg Film and Video Archive at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum received the third set of digital videotapes in May 1999.
