The United Nations Holocaust Programme partnered with the State of Israel
to observe the 50th Anniversary of The Eichmann Trial
“The Trial of Adolf Eichmann: 50 Years Later”
The United Nations, in partnership with the State of Israel, marked the 1961 trial of Adolf Eichmann, the mastermind behind the systematic mass deportation and murder of European Jews during the Holocaust, with a round-table discussion on 23 April in the North Lawn Building. Titled “The Trial of Adolf Eichmann: 50 Years Later”, the round table examined the trial’s influence on society and on justice and accountability in the 21st century. An interactive discussion with the audience followed the speakers’ presentations.
