He was accused of organizing the murder of six million Jews, they made sure the world was watching as he was brought to justice.

This 90-minute dramatization is the extraordinary true story of how the trial of Adolf Eichmann came to be televised and the American production team that made it happen.  Overcoming enormous obstacles, they captured the testimony of one of the war’s most notorious Nazis, and in so doing helped break the postwar silence on the Holocaust and brought the voice of survivors to the world.

Statement on the Refugee Crisis 

The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance issued the following statement:

“As expert delegates of the IHRA, we are profoundly concerned about the plight of the refugees fleeing war-torn countries. The circumstances surrounding the current refugee situation are notably different from the persecution of Jews and other victims before, during and after the Holocaust; nonetheless, there are parallels between the treatment of refugees then and now – particularly regarding the shameful closing of borders, the rise of xenophobia, and the use of dehumanising language.

In light of the gravity of the situation, we call upon the international community to show initiative and take action to uphold the basic standards of human rights, as formulated in the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights and succeeding declarations, so that people can be given dignified sanctuary. We call upon the international community to fulfill its obligations undertaken as signatories to these commitments.

Furthermore, we call upon leaders to draw appropriate lessons from the past so that we may affirm the principles of the Stockholm Declaration to “strengthen the moral commitment of our peoples, and the political commitment of our governments, to ensure that future generations can understand the causes of the Holocaust and reflect upon its consequences.”

IHRA experts also commit themselves to this critical issue by exploring in greater detail the situation of refugees in the past and present so that wider society can better understand the circumstances behind the refugees’ plight.”
