Note change of date from the 5th to 26th of March 2015. More than any one man Adolf Eichmann was responsible for the day to day mechanics and logistics that lay behind the Holocaust, and made it possible. He energetically directed the deportation and mass murder of millions of Jews from across Europe, and oversaw the operation of the Nazi death machine. In May 1960 he was abducted from his hideaway in Argentina and put on trial in Jerusalem.

At his trial he gave frank and open testimony about his role in the Nazi genocide, but in doing so revealed many uncomfortable truths that many around the world would have preferred not to hear. His testimony was as revealing as it was shocking, and shone a light on places many would have preferred remain in darkness.
