Fifty years ago, in April 1961, the trial of Adolf Eichmann suddenly revealed to a worldwide audience in all its tragic detail, and for most people for the first time, the shocking reality of the horrors of the Nazi Final Solution. At the time it was not yet known by its current name: the Holocaust or the Shoah. Many journalists and reporters were dispatched from all over the world to cover the trial. Hannah Arendt in particular, was there for the New Yorker and produced a number of articles and a famous book entitled Eichmann in Jerusalem. Her work was both acclaimed and harshly criticized for its interpretation of those horrible events that destroyed millions of Jews and other victims in Europe during World War II. At the same time, Sergio Minerbi, a young Israeli of Italian origin who had emigrated to Palestine in 1947 was commissioned to cover the trial for Italian State Radio RAI. His work constitutes both a daily chronicle of the court proceedings with a vivid description of the atmosphere surrounding the trial inside the courtroom and within the city of Jerusalem that conveys a realistic and vivid picture of those proceedings. The result is one of the best and most fluid accounts of what happened in Jerusalem as the tribunal convened to hear the most sensational and upsetting case of crimes against humanity ever tried. The Eichmann trial went beyond the Nuremberg trials that had barely considered the subject of genocide and extermination. It was also remarkable for another reason: the State of Israel had been in existence for just 13 years and had been founded by many of the survivors of the Final Solution. Many women and men outside the courtroom could carried their experience with them every day of their lives and could now see one of their main torturers face to face. The complaint against Adolf Eichmann, a high officer of the SS and Gestapo specialized in the Jewish QuestionA" on behalf of the government of Nazi Germany was therefore for his direct responsibility in the murder of the Jews. The case against him was brought directly by the injured party, namely the Jewish People.Über den Autor:

Buchbeschreibung New York :. Enigma Books, 2011. Hardcover. Dustjacket. 256 pp.- More than fifty years ago in April, 1961, the trial of Adolf Eichmann opened in Jerusalem. At first most observers concentrated on the details of the amazing arrest of the former SS officer hiding in Argentina under an assumed name. The trial informed the world about the gigantic enterprise of extermination and murder carried out by Nazi Germany against the Jews that is now called the Holocaust. RAI---Italian State radio---asked a professor of history and political science who had emigrated from Italy to Palestine in 1947 to report to its listeners. His account came as the trial unfolded with vivid descriptions of the proceedings and how the Israeli public was reacting to the shocking revelations that a worldwide audience discovered for the first time. The author kept his notes as a daily chronicle so that the drama taking place in the courtroom was preserved and became this book. The Eichmann Trial Diary therefore offers a very different view from that of the philosopher Hannah Arendt writing for The New Yorker or the historians reconstructing the event decades later. This account stands out as the best kind of journalism and popular history. It is in the process of being translated into Hebrew for distribution into the Israeli educational system. English text.

Sehr gutes Ex. - IN APRIL 1961 THE TRIAL OF ADOLF EICHMANN, a high-ranking SS and Gestapo officer who was in charge of the "Jewish Question," revealed in all its tragic detail the monstrous reality of the Nazi "Final Solution," known as the Holocaust, in Hebrew the Shoah. The case against Eichmann regarded his direct responsibility for the mass murder of the Jews. Sergio Minerbi, a young Israeli journalist of Italian descent, was covering the trial for Italian state radio and television (RAI.) He gave a daily chronicle of the proceedings and a vivid description of the atmosphere inside the courtroom and among ordinary Israeli citizens in Jerusalem. This diary remains one of the best descriptions of the most sensational case of crimes against humanity to ever go to trial. Far more than the Nuremberg Tribunal, Adolf Eichmann's trial centered on the extermination of the Jews as a people. The proceedings remain remarkable for another reason: many survivors outside the courtroom carried their awful experience with them every day and could finally see one of their chief torturers answer to an Israeli court for his crimes. Held less than twenty years after the Holocaust, many victims could still testify effectively for the prosecution. Their words move us deeply to this day.
