The Eichmann Show Documentary
Survivors of the Holocaust, prosecutors, historians and the 1961 production team share their experience of Nazi atrocities and the prosecution of one of their key organisers.
The inside story of the Eichmann Trial. The elusive figure in the dock, the horrific experiences of inmates of the extermination camps, the meaning and importance of the recording and broadcast of events around the world and how the event was both a show trial for Israel and Eichmann himself. Here was a key moment in the history of the Holocaust and our understanding of it. The series features extracts from The Eichmann Show, a major dramatisation of the trial and its broadcast, starring actors Martin Freeman, Anthony LaPaglia and Rebecca Front.
