Eichmann before Jerusalem Book Excerpt:

A New York Times Notable Book of 2014 Smuggled out of Europe after the collapse of Germany, Eichmann managed to live a peaceful and active exile in Argentina for years before his capture by the Mossad. Though once widely known by nicknames such as 'Manager of the Holocaust', he was able to portray himself, from the defendant's box in Jerusalem in 1960, as an overworked bureaucrat following orders – no more, he said, than 'just a small cog in Adolf Hitler's extermination machine'. How was this carefully crafted obfuscation possible? How did a principal architect of the Final Solution manage to disappear? How had he occupied himself in hiding? Drawing upon an astounding trove of newly discovered documentation, Stangneth gives us a chilling portrait not of a reclusive, taciturn war criminal on the run, but of a highly skilled social manipulator with an inexhaustible ability to reinvent himself, an unrepentant murderer eager for acolytes to discuss past glories and vigorously planning future goals.

Summary of Hannah Arendt s Eichmann in Jerusalem Book Excerpt:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The courtroom was solemn, and the judges’ attention was focused on the suffering stories they heard. They were not theatrical, and their conduct was natural. #2 The trial was not a show trial, and Judge Landau, who presided over it, did his best to prevent it from becoming one. The proceedings happened on a stage before an audience, with the usher’s marvelous shout at the beginning of each session producing the effect of the rising curtain. #3 The judges at the Eichmann trial were careful to avoid the spotlight, but they were still in it. The audience was supposed to represent the whole world, and in the first few weeks, it consisted chiefly of newspaper and magazine writers who had flocked to Jerusalem from all corners of the earth. #4 The Israeli government was extremely hostile to the idea of an international court that would have indicted Eichmann for crimes against humanity, rather than just crimes against the Jewish people.

Modesty and Arrogance in Judgment Book Excerpt:

Barry Sharpe examines Hannah Arendt's Eichmann in Jerusalem and the controversy it spurred as a way of exploring basic features and issues of judgment. After giving careful attention to Arendt's portrait of Adolf Eichmann and the Jewish Central Councils as well as considering Eichmann in the context of Arendt's other work, Sharpe concludes that Eichmann is an unintentionally ironic example of both the need for and the blindness of distance in judgment.

The Eichmann Trial Book Excerpt:

***NATIONAL JEWISH BOOK AWARD FINALIST (2012)*** Part of the Jewish Encounter series The capture of SS Lieutenant Colonel Adolf Eichmann by Israeli agents in Argentina in May of 1960 and his subsequent trial in Jerusalem by an Israeli court electrified the world. The public debate it sparked on where, how, and by whom Nazi war criminals should be brought to justice, and the international media coverage of the trial itself, was a watershed moment in how the civilized world in general and Holocaust survivors in particular found the means to deal with the legacy of genocide on a scale that had never been seen before. Award-winning historian Deborah E. Lipstadt gives us an overview of the trial and analyzes the dramatic effect that the survivors’ courtroom testimony—which was itself not without controversy—had on a world that had until then regularly commemorated the Holocaust but never fully understood what the millions who died and the hundreds of thousands who managed to survive had actually experienced. As the world continues to confront the ongoing reality of genocide and ponder the fate of those who survive it, this trial of the century, which has become a touchstone for judicial proceedings throughout the world, offers a legal, moral, and political framework for coming to terms with unfathomable evil. Lipstadt infuses a gripping narrative with historical perspective and contemporary urgency.

Hannah Arendt Book Excerpt:

Hannah Arendt is one of the great outsiders of twentieth-century political philosophy. After reporting on the trial of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann, Arendt embarked on a series of reflections about how to make judgments and exercise responsibility without recourse to existing law, especially when existing law is judged as immoral. This book uses Hannah Arendt’s text Eichmann in Jerusalem to examine major themes in legal theory, including the nature of law, legal authority, the duty of citizens, the nexus between morality and law and political action.

The Banality of Evil Book Excerpt:

Takes its point of departure from Hannah Arendt's "Eichmann in Jerusalem." Focuses neither on Eichmann nor the Holocaust, but on what Bergen sees as the political and philosophical consequences of the "banality of evil." These derive from the human failure to develop the thought, will, and judgment that are necessary to prevent the kind of evil committed by the Nazis. Like Arendt, Bergen is more concerned with totalitarianism than antisemitism, often referring to her work "The Origins of Totalitarianism."

The Correspondence of Hannah Arendt and Gershom Scholem Book Excerpt:

The essence of the correspondence between Arendt and Scholem can be said to lie in three things. Above all it provides an intimate account of how two great intellectuals try to come to terms with being both German and Jewish, and how to think about Germany before, during, and after the Holocaust. They also debate the issue of what it means to be Jewish in the post-Holocaust world whether in New York or in Jerusalem. Finally, the specter of Benjamin haunts the work and in a sense the letters are as much about Benjamin as the other two questions since his life and tragic death epitomize them both. Arendt and Scholem's letters on these weighty questions are lightened by more routine exchanges: on travel itineraries, lunch or dinner parties where important people were present, and so forth. These daily details are woven throughout the correspondence and provide vivid biographical information about Arendt and Scholem that is unavailable in any other source.

Responsibility and Judgment Book Excerpt:

Each of the books that Hannah Arendt published in her lifetime was unique, and to this day each continues to provoke fresh thought and interpretations. This was never more true than for Eichmann in Jerusalem, her account of the trial of Adolf Eichmann, where she first used the phrase “the banality of evil.” Her consternation over how a man who was neither a monster nor a demon could nevertheless be an agent of the most extreme evil evoked derision, outrage, and misunderstanding. The firestorm of controversy prompted Arendt to readdress fundamental questions and concerns about the nature of evil and the making of moral choices. Responsibility and Judgment gathers together unpublished writings from the last decade of Arendt’s life, as she struggled to explicate the meaning of Eichmann in Jerusalem. At the heart of this book is a profound ethical investigation, “Some Questions of Moral Philosophy”; in it Arendt confronts the inadequacy of traditional moral “truths” as standards to judge what we are capable of doing, and she examines anew our ability to distinguish good from evil and right from wrong. We see how Arendt comes to understand that alongside the radical evil she had addressed in earlier analyses of totalitarianism, there exists a more pernicious evil, independent of political ideology, whose execution is limitless when the perpetrator feels no remorse and can forget his acts as soon as they are committed. Responsibility and Judgment is an essential work for understanding Arendt’s conception of morality; it is also an indispensable investigation into some of the most troubling and important issues of our time.

After Eichmann Book Excerpt:

In 1961 Adolf Eichmann went on trial in Jerusalem for his part in the Nazi persecution and mass murder of Europe’s Jews. For the first time a judicial process focussed on the genocide against the Jews and heard Jewish witnesses to the catastrophe. The trial and the controversies it caused had a profound effect on shaping the collective memory of what became ‘the Holocaust’. This volume, a special issue of the Journal of Israeli History, brings together new research by scholars from Europe, Israel and the USA.

Eichmann en Jerusal n Eichmann in Jerusalem A Report on the Banality of Evil Book Excerpt:

El gran estudio sobre el Holocausto, un ensayo de lectura imprescindible e inolvidable. A partir del juicio que en 1961 se llevó a cabo contra Adolf Eichmann, teniente coronel de la SS y uno de los mayores criminales de la historia, Hannah Arendt estudia en este ensayo las causas que propiciaron el Holocausto y el papel equívoco que desempeñaron en tal genocidio los consejos judíos -cuestión que, en su época, fue motivo de una airada controversia-, así como la naturaleza y la función de la justicia, aspecto que la lleva a plantear la necesidad de instituir un tribunal internacional capaz de juzgar crímenes contra la humanidad. Poco a poco, la mirada lúcida y penetrante de Arendt va desentrañando la personalidad del acusado, analiza su contexto social y político y su rigor intachable a la hora de organizar la deportación y el exterminio de las comunidades judías. Al mismo tiempo, la filósofa alemana estudia la colaboración o la resistencia en la aplicación de la Solución Final por parte de algunas naciones ocupadas y expone problemas cuya trascendencia sigue determinando la escena política de nuestros días. Más de cincuenta años después de su publicación, Eichmann en Jerusalén sigue siendo uno de los mejores estudios sobre el Holocausto, un ensayo de lectura inaplazable para entender lo que sin duda fue la gran tragedia del siglo XX. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION The controversial journalistic analysis of the mentality that fostered the Holocaust, from the author of The Origins of Totalitarianism Sparking a flurry of heated debate, Hannah Arendt’s authoritative and stunning report on the trial of German Nazi leader Adolf Eichmann first appeared as a series of articles in The New Yorker in 1963.

Hannah Arendt The Last Interview Book Excerpt:

Arendt was one of the most important thinkers of her time, famous for her idea of "the banality of evil" which continues to provoke debate. This collection provides new and startling insight into Arendt's thoughts about Watergate and the nature of American politics, about totalitarianism and history, and her own experiences as an émigré. Hannah Arendt: The Last Interview and Other Conversations is an extraordinary portrait of one of the twentieth century's boldest and most original thinkers. As well as Arendt's last interview with French journalist Roger Errera, the volume features an important interview from the early 60s with German journalist Gunter Gaus, in which the two discuss Arendt's childhood and her escape from Europe, and a conversation with acclaimed historian of the Nazi period, Joachim Fest, as well as other exchanges. These interviews show Arendt in vigorous intellectual form, taking up the issues of her day with energy and wit. She offers comments on the nature of American politics, on Watergate and the Pentagon Papers, on Israel; remembers her youth and her early experience of anti-Semitism, and then the swift rise of the Hitler; debates questions of state power and discusses her own processes of thinking and writing. Hers is an intelligence that never rests, that demands always of her interlocutors, and her readers, that they think critically. As she puts it in her last interview, just six months before her death at the age of 69, "there are no dangerous thoughts, for the simple reason that thinking itself is such a dangerous enterprise."

Eichmann Book Excerpt:

A monumental and groundbreaking biography of the architect of the Nazi’s “Final Solution,” and one of the icons of evil in our age. Adolf Eichmann was at the centre of the Nazi genocide against the Jews of Europe between 1941 and 1945. He was directly responsible for transporting over 2 million Jews to their deaths in Auschwitz-Birkenau and other death camps. Yet he was an obscure figure until his sensational capture by the Israeli Secret Service in Argentina in 1960, and his subsequent trial in Jerusalem. This study is the first account of Eichmann’s life to appear since the aftermath of his trial. It is a groundbreaking biography of one of the most fascinating of the Nazi leaders. Drawing on recently unearthed documents, David Cesarani shows how Eichmann became the Nazi Security Service’s “expert” on Jewish matters and reveals his initially cordial working relationship with Zionist Jews in Germany, despite his intense anti-Semitism. Cesarani explains how new research demonstrates that the massive ethnic cleansing Eichmann conducted in Poland in 1939-40 was the crucial bridge to his role in the deportation of the Jews. And he argues controversially that Eichmann was not necessarily predisposed to mass murder, exploring the remarkable, largely unknown period in Eichmann’s career when he learned how to become a perpetrator of genocide.
