Various shots inside the courtroom in Jerusalem, where a tape-recorder is being played. This is playing back the confession of the Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann. Shots of Eichmann, the judges, etc.
Note: The confession is heard in German and then translated by the voice-over. He downplays his role in the Holocaust but admits his guilt and offers to be hanged in public as a deterrent to others. He had fled from Germany to Argentina after the war.
