Deborah E. Lipstad: The Eichmann Trial
The conviction of Nazi leader Adolf Eichmann by an Israeli court electrified the world in 1962. The historian Deborah Lipstadt examines the dramatic effect that the courtroom testimony had on a world that, until the trial, had commemorated the Holocaust without fully understanding the experiences of its victims and survivors. CPDUs are available for educators.
