Eichmann Before Jerusalem free pdf A "New York Times"Notable Book A National Jewish Book Award finalist In 1960, Adolf Eichmann took to the defendant s box in Jerusalem and insisted that he was no manager of the Holocaust, as his accusers claimed, just a smalltime bureaucrat following orders. Like countless others, Hannah Arendt covering the trials for "The New Yorker" believed him. "Eichmann Before Jerusalem "challenges this history for the first time, completely reassessing Eichmann s story and drawing upon a wealth of newly uncovered materials that reveal his great deception, as well as bringing to light shocking truths about Nazis in the post-war world. Mapping out the astonishing links between innumerable past adherents from ace Luftwaffe pilots to SS henchmen both in exile and in Germany, Bettina Stangneth reconstructs in detail the secret life of one of the Holocaust s principal organizers."
