Adolf Eichmann in The Specialist

The Specialist: Portrait of a Modern Criminal

1999 NR

Lieutenant colonel Adolf Eichmann was in charge of the expulsion of Jews, Slovenians and gypsies from the Reich between 1938 and 1941, and then of their deportation from Europe to the death camps. He was captured in 1960, and his trial was one of the first public events recorded on video in the entire world. This unique documentary of the Eichmann trial stresses the contrast between the monstrosity of the crime and the mediocrity of the man.
