Overview

The State of Israel vs. Adolf Eichmann is a comprehensive examination of the Eichmann trial - hailed as a landmark study when it was published in Israel in 2001 - that reveals how the trial marked a turning point in Israel's national consciousness. Hanna Yablonka, one of Israel's leading historians, begins her narrative with the dramatic capture of Eichmann in Argentina in 1960 and describes the controversies that surrounded his abduction - the UN condemned it, and it strained Israel's new and profitable relationship with West Germany - and the emotionally wrought trial itself. She delineates the impact of the trial on the many disparate factions of Israeli society and makes clear how, in the unexpected and penetrating light of the trial, Israelis changed their notions not only about their country's own society, but about their place in the world as an independent state.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Israel's 1960 capture in Argentina of Adolf Eichmann, the man who made the trains to Auschwitz run on time, and his trial two years later garnered world headlines, and as Yablonska shows in this thought-provoking work, they were seminal events in Israeli history as well. As she describes it, the trial was a catharsis for an entire country attempting to emerge from the shadows of the Holocaust. (Over 60% of Israelis older than 14 listened to at least part of it on the radio.) On the surface, the decision to execute Eichmann helped Israelis create a sense of nationhood based on strength and pride, rather than on the victimhood and helplessness of those who died at the hands of the Nazis. But the trial played another, somewhat contradictory role in Israeli society. Focusing on both the trial itself, and on individual and media reactions to it, Yablonska, who teaches Jewish history at Israel's Ben-Gurion University, shows how it helped place Holocaust survivors in the center of Israeli society. Before the trial, survivors were seen as remnants of weak Diaspora Jewry. But after the execution, survivors felt more comfortable talking about what they had been through, and cultural explorations of their wartime experiences proliferated. In other words, the Israeli experience came closer to Jewish history. Much of the material here is covered with a broader sweep in Tom Segev's The Seventh Million, but this is a valuable work for those interested in the Holocaust, memory and Israeli society. 24 photos not seen by PW.

Library Journal
Yablonka (history, Ben-Gurion Univ.) examines the impact of Adolph Eichmann's 1961 trial in Jerusalem on the State of Israel, both domestically and in its foreign policy. For example, when Eichmann was captured Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion was involved in delicate negotiations with West Germany and, therefore, diplomatic considerations played a significant role in shaping the focus of the indictment and prosecution. The Eichmann trial affected diverse sections of Israeli society, from the education curriculum to the media's relationship with the government. Over a third of Israel's population in 1961 were Holocaust survivors, and Yablonka argues that the Eichmann trial facilitated the integration of their experiences into the broader social fabric. After Eichmann's conviction and execution, almost all Israelis were able to assimilate its lessons and claim the tragedy of the Holocaust as part of their personal and national legacy. The trial was therefore a crucible for the development of a national consensus about the significance of the Holocaust, and it has shaped Israeli public consciousness for over 40 years. In addition, by taking the initiative to try Eichmann for crimes against the Jewish people, Israel laid claim to speak for the disenfranchised Jews of history, who had no nation to adjudicate their legal claims.

    Not a book on the trial

    This is a rather rambling book on the Nazi Eichmann who was hiding in Argentina and brought back to trial in Israel by Israeli agents. This book covers the cultural and political atmosphere during that period.It does not go into details as to how Israeli agents kidnapped Eichmann and brought him to Israel. If you are looking for a book on how the trial was conducted and the defences raised this is not for you.
