Tomorrow is Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day, which is marked on the 27th day of the Jewish month of Nisan and it comes to commemorate the Holocaust (spanned from before the start of World War II in 1939 and through to its end in 1945). For this occasion, Zvi Elhyani published a fascinating article about the design, memory, and imagery of one of the most painful events in Israeli’s history, the Eichmann Trial of 1961.
After being captured in Argentina, Nazi leader Adolf Eichmann, known as the architect of the Final Solution, was put on trial in Israel, found guilty and sentenced to death. Elhyani’s article is based on never-seen-before archival research which chronicles the design decisions made in order to turn the trial into a stage that tells the world the story of the Jewish faith in the Holocaust.
