This lecture is one of a series of ten lectures that will focus on education in times of national disasters and calamity in Jewish History. These online lectures are held in conjunction with Sydney University’s Department of Hebrew, Biblical and Jewish Studies and Mandelbaum House.

This week’s lecture will focus on the influence of the Eichmann Trial on Israeli society.

In April 10, 1961, The Eichmann trial was opened in Beit Ha’am in Jerusalem. The trial was an important milestone concerning the attitude of Israeli society towards the Holocaust and Holocaust survivors, and had a big influenced internationally. This was the first time that the Holocaust was presented to a competent judicial body in full detail. Journalists from many countries converged upon Jerusalem to cover the trial, and international public opinion followed its course with concentration. The trial gave rise to discussions on a great variety of subjects, on the legal, educational, philosophical, psychological, religious, and political levels.

Sixty years after the Trial we will discuss the effects of the trial upon Holocaust survivors and the larger society, in Israel and overseas.

Dr. Na’ama Shik is a Holocaust historian and educator. She has been lecturing, teaching and working at the International School for Holocaust Studies at Yad Vashem since 1999, where she serves as the director of the E-Learning department.
