New Mexico Jewish Historical Society Presents
Covering the Eichmann Trial @ Albuquerque JCC @ Tue 30 December 2014 @ 7:00 pm
What It Is: The New Mexico Jewish Historical Society (NMJHS) presents Covering the Eichmann Trial: A Reporters's Testimony with Natey Freedman.
In April of 1961, twenty-six year old independent news producer and broadcaster Natey Freedman became the first American journalist to arrive in Israel to cover the trial of Adolf Eichmann.
Initially treated as a minor story for select American markets with large Jewish populations, the Eichmann trial aroused national and international attention, bringing Nazi atrocities to the forefront of world news.
Drawing from his personal archives and journals, Freedman will discuss — for the first time in public — the searing testimonies from survivors that he recorded firsthand, and the experience of being in Jerusalem at a time when the unique horror and legacy of the Shoah was finally confronted after decades of silence.
