Skip “The Eichmann Show” – Watch “The Eichmann Trial” Instead

The above link will take you to a one hour excerpt from the Eichmann trial, as well as links to more of the sessions. If you are interested in Adolph Eichmann’s trial for his part in the execution of more than Six Million Jews, you will want to see at least part of this historical trial.

You will also want to avoid “The Eichmann Show,” an ill-conceived and incompetently executed misery of a film. There is no need to go into the shortcomings of this BBC production, as they are legion, and shortchange history in every regard. The only positive aspect of this grotesquely written and acted show is that it may lead viewers to looking deeper into the subject. The authentic transcripts of the trial are a good place to start.
