The Scowcroft Institute and the Glasscock Center for Humanities Research will host a public screening of Michaël Prazan’s documentary, The Trial of Adolf Eichmann, on January 23 at 7:30 p.m. at the Annenberg Conference Center.  Originally made in France, this 2013 new release has an English narration.  The film screening precedes a conference entitled “Hannah Arendt’s Eichmann in Jerusalem: 50 Years On,” which commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of Hannah Arendt’s book, Eichmann in Jerusalem.  The conference is part of a two-year series entitled “World War II and its Global Legacies.”

The 1961 trial of Adolf Eichmann, held in an Israeli courtroom and broadcast around the globe, was a benchmark event in the historiography of the Holocaust, especially in Israel where the trial proved a watershed experience for survivors and citizens of the new Jewish state. Employing new video and broadcast technologies, the trial was also a milestone in media and journalism coverage. Made by the producers of Being Jewish in France and Einsatzgruppen, this documentary features detailed accounts of Eichmann’s capture, the drama in the courtroom and behind the scenes, and reactions to the trial from around the world.

Reviewers have noted the film’s ability to “give the audience a chance to be at the trial,” and praised its unique assemblage of interviews, footage, and analysis.

Those wishing to attend the screening should register with the Glasscock Center at or call 979.458.8015.  For more information about the event, go to
