Course DescriptionThe 60th anniversary of the Eichmann Trial in Israel presents an important opportunity for us to
take a closer look at the “architect of the Holocaust.” Did he really just represent the “banality of evil” as author Hannah Arendt so famously expressed it? Or was he indeed a fanatical and utterly brutal Nazi, as recent historical research suggests? Join German Historian Anette Isaacs
for a compelling discussion of the decade Eichmann spent in Buenos Aires, which will reveal
crucial insights into the mind of one of the world’s most callous mass murderers.
