The Capture and Trial of Adolf EichmanneBook - 2015
Includes, as an Appendix, a full text of the Indictment, translated from the Hebrew. The horror trial of the 20th century has been that of Adolf Eichmann, Obersturmbannfپhrer of Germany's death camps-the man who, between 1939-1945, in one way or another, caused the killing of six million men, women, and children. Out of mountains of courtroom evidence, both live and documentary, Pearlman renders a relevant, reliable account of the drama. The whole story is here: from the capture in Argentina, to the world-famed image of the twitching man in the glass-enclosed dock as he listened to the sagas of the ghetto fighters, the confrontation of the accused and witnesses who came back as if from the dead, the indictment enunciated by Hausner, and the defense arguments of Servatius. And lastly the words of Eichmann himself: "I received orders and I executed orders." A gripping read.
