According to Yad Vashem—the Israel Holocaust Museum—nothing rivals the Eichmann trial as a milestone and turning point, whose impact is evident to this day. In 1961, one of the world's most notorious war criminals sat in a courtroom for a trial that would be among the first in history to be completely televised. The trial brought the Holocaust into the historical, educational, legal and cultural discourse, not only in Israel and the Jewish world, but in the consciousness of all peoples of the world. It extended the legal precedent set by the Nuremberg trials which placed personal responsibility on the perpetrators of genocide and crimes against humanity. This is the story of the hunt for, capture, kidnapping and trial of the man who had been in charge of transporting millions of European Jews to death camps.
