Film | Accession Number: 1999.A.0087 | RG Number: RG-60.2100.187 | Film ID: 2187

Session 105. Tape begins midsentence from a question asked on Tape 2186. Eichmann is correcting a passage where he is quoted. 00:00:49 Eichmann is asked about the Declaration of War by Dr. Chaim Weizmann and if he believed that it was a propaganda lie. The answer is interrupted by a slate.

00:03:10 Eichmann is asked about the request of a Dr. Loewenhertz for the remains of Theodore Herzl. Eichmann enthusiastically denies that he is anti-Semitic. His statements in the Sassen Document backs that up. 00:13:05 Dr. Servatius is finished with the re-examination of Eichmann. He will now face questions from the Judges.

00:14:16 Tape jumps. Eichmann is being asked about when he could not live up to the Categorical Imperative of Emmanuel Kant, in which he believes.

00:19:09 Tape jumps again. Eichmann is now describing something he wrote while in Israel. 00:22:13 Eichmann is interrupted by the slate. Tape resumes without any loss. It is a description of what Eichmann told his subordinates as Berlin was under siege. He said he was glad it was the end, and expected to die gloriously in this final battle. He says the text after that is forged. Eichmann twice estimated the number of Jews killed at five million. 00:30:23 Court adjourns, shots of crowd, Dr. Servatius, and others.
