'I prosecuted an architect of the Holocaust'

One of the major organisers of the Holocaust, former Nazi SS officer Adolf Eichmann spent more than a decade in hiding before being tracked down in Argentina.

In 1961, Eichmann was put on trial in Jerusalem for charges including crimes against humanity.

Gabriel Bach was a young Israeli lawyer at the time and was chosen as one of the prosecutors in a trial attracting worldwide attention.

He spoke to Witness about the testimonies that stay with him to this day.
