Eichmann in Jerusalem

By Hannah Arendt and Amos Elon
Eichmann in Jerusalem by Hannah Arendt and Amos Elon digital book - Fable

Publisher 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. This revised edition includes material that came to light after the trial, as well as Arendt’s postscript directly addressing the controversy that arose over her account. A major journalistic triumph by an intellectual of singular influence, Eichmann in Jerusalem is as shocking as it is informative—an unflinching look at one of the most unsettling (and unsettled) issues of the twentieth century.

Anxious Face with sweat“The importance of the message in the modern world is heartbreaking. In the core of evil deeds is the banal truth that even when morality is flipped the law must still be followed and enforced. Seems that we haven't all yet figured that out.”
