Adolph Eichmann, SS Lieutenant Colonel and facilitator of the plan to exterminate the Jews during the Holocaust, was captured by the Israeli Mossad in Argentina in 1960, 15 years after the end of World War II. His 1961 trial in Jerusalem was televised around the world, providing an opportunity for survivor testimonies to be heard by international audiences for the first time.

Deborah Lipstadt, Dorot Professor of Modern Jewish History and Holocaust Studies at Emory University and author of the new book, The Eichmann Trial will discuss these extraordinary events in conversation with Gary Rosenblatt, Editor of The Jewish Week. A reception and book signing will immediately follow the conversation with Deborah Lipstadt.

Special Screening: WITNESS TO THE HOLOCAUST: THE TRIAL OF ADOLPH EICHMANN, a 90-minute film produced by The Jewish Museum from the original trial footage, will be screened at 4:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., immediately before and after the discussion.
