A Most Un-Banal Trial

Your Vox Tablet preview

Print Email

Fifty years ago next month, a trial riveted television spectators all over the world. It provoked heated debate over Israel’s right to represent all Jews, and to try those responsible for the Final Solution (which, detractors noted, was carried out before the state existed). It also established the idea that survivors of genocide are not only victims, but valuable witnesses. In Monday’s episode of Vox Tablet, host Sara Ivry speaks with history professor Deborah Lipstadt, author of Nextbook Press’s latest volume, The Eichmann Trial.

Most of you, we’re guessing, were not around for the trial, which makes Lipstadt’s new book all the more important; at the same time, we’d love to hear from those of you who were, and have recollections of it.
