The Eichmann Trial: 60 years on
60 years after the Eichmann Trial, a leading panel will discuss this historic event and its effect on public awareness of the Holocaust About this Event The AJR in partnership with 3GNY and ANU, Museum of the Jewish People, bring together a leading panel of experts - Tamar Hausner-Raveh, Eli Rosenbaum, Shulamith Bahat and Avner Avraham - to discuss the landmark Eichmann trial, on its 60th anniversary. The panel will be chaired by James Libson. Adolf Eichmann played a pivotal role in the implementation of the Final Solution. Charged with managing and facilitating the mass deportation of Jews to ghettos and killing centers in the German-occupied East, he was among the major organisers of the Holocaust. Following his stunning abduction by the Mossad in Argentina on 11 May 1960, Eichmann's trial in Jerusalem in 1961 sparked international interest and heightened public awareness of the crimes of the Holocaust.
