The Ghetto Fighters' House invites you to a special program of "Talking Memory" marking International Holocaust Memorial Day and the 60th anniversary of the Eichmann trial: :

Between Eichmann and Demjanjuk: Two Holocaust Trials in Israel

with guest speakers:
Prof. Hanna Yablonka and Dr. Tamir Hod

Two Holocaust trials that took place in Israel, and dealt with the perpetrators and the collaborators, have taught us much about the tragic past of the Jewish people. Moreover, these two trials can be seen as the case study through which we can learn about Israeli society and its inherent connection to Holocaust remembrance. A discussion on these two trials also points to the process Israeli society experienced in connection to its relationship to the Holocaust in the years between these two events. The Eichmann trial completely changed Israel's awareness of the Holocaust. The Demjanjuk trial was the last and ended in Demjanjuk's acquittal, consigning the event to oblivion.

This discussion with Prof. Yablonka and Dr. Hod will reveal the complex connection between law and history, especially when dealing with such tragic events like the Holocaust and its impact on the Jewish people.
