The Eichmann Trial Revisited

International Aspects

Leah Goldstein

To mark the 60th anniversary of the Eichmann Trial, the International Institute for Holocaust Research at Yad Vashem, together with three institutes at Tel Aviv University, held an online conference that focused on the international aspects of the historic proceedings. The conference was attended by historians and researchers from Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Israel and the United States. In a special interview with Yad Vashem Jerusalem, Prof. Roni Stauber, Academic Director of the Wiener Library, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Jewish History at Tel Aviv University and a Member of the Yad Vashem Academic Committee, explained the background of the conference, the topics examined and aspirations for further research.
