Fifty years after Nazi criminal Adolf Eichmann was brought to justice, the men who captured, investigated and prosecuted the Holocaust mastermind held a rare reunion Thursday in the Jerusalem hall where his famous trial took place.The gathering, marking the U.N.’s annual Holocaust Remembrance Day, revisited the landmark trial that brought to light in vivid detail the horrors of the Nazi final solution to rid Europe of its Jews.The 1961 trial, in which Eichmann sat inside a bulletproof glass booth and calmly listened to the testimonies of some who survived his efforts to kill them, was a watershed moment for the young state of Israel.Until they heard gripping public testimony of Jews who survived extreme torture and deprivation, many Israelis looked down on the survivors as weak victims, at odds with the macho image of the “new Jew” of Israel. The emotional descriptions of the horrors they survived changed the perception for many and allowed more survivors to go public with their lingering pain.It also opened Israeli minds to stories of underground Jewish resistance fighters and doomed but courageous ghetto uprisings.Six million Jews were killed by the German Nazis and their collaborators during World War II, many of them following Eichmann’s blueprint for liquidating the entire Jewish population of Europe.
