Elie Honig will host a viewing and discussion of his documentary commemorating the 60th anniversary of the trial of Adolf Eichmann, widely known as the “Architect of the Holocaust.” Honig is an Eagleton faculty associate, member of Temple Emanu-El, CNN Senior Legal Analyst, and bestselling author of Hatchet Man: How Bill Barr Broke the Prosecutor’s Code and Corrupted the Justice Department.
About the documentary
Eagleton Faculty Associate and CNN Legal Analyst Elie Honig created a new CNN documentary that premiered on October 15, 2021, titled, “60 years ago, we saw the face of evil.” The documentary marks the 60th anniversary of the 1961 war crimes trial in Israel of Adolph Eichmann, the Nazi “Architect of the Holocaust.”
In the piece, Honig interviews Gabriel Bach, who was one of the prosecutors of the trial, and Michael Goldmann-Gilead, who was the lead investigator. During the interview, both Bach and Goldmann-Gilead share their vivid memories of the trial and remarkable wisdom on what it means now, generations later.
Honig, an alumnus of the Eagleton Undergraduate Associates Program, also shares his own family history, including connections to his grandparents who survived the Holocaust. Watch the documentary.
