The Adolf Eichmann trial in 1961 captivated a global community. Eichmann was a notorious Nazi officer and one of the most instrumental organizers of the Holocaust. Following the war, he evaded capture for years, until finally seized by the Mossad in Argentina.

Eichmann’s arrest and subsequent trial became a pivotal moment in Holocaust history, as both the Jewish and non-Jewish world tuned in to relive witness testimony and, in some ways, finally begin to heal from the horrors of Nazi Germany.
