David Cesarani’s Eichmann: His Life and Crimes (2004) is the first account of Eichmann’s life since the aftermath of his dramatic capture and trial by the Israelis. He describes how Eichmann embraced extermination as a career move and how a normal man became “rotten from the inside out”.
Hanna Yablonka’s The State of Israel VS. Adolf Eichmann (2004) reveals how the 1961 trial was constructed, becoming a turning point for Israeli society and perception of the Holocaust around the world. Together with Lisa Appignanesi, the two authors explored his continuing impact.
David Cesarani’s books include Arthur Koestler (1999) and The Jews and the Left / The Left and the Jews (2004).
Hanna Yablonka is Professor of History at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, and author of The Holocaust and Israeli Society (2003).
Lisa Appignanesi’s latest novel is The Memory Man (2004).
