The Eichmann Trial 50 Years Later

On April 8, 2011 it was announced that two new YouTube Channels would be launched containing the film track of the Eichmann Trial held by the Israel State Archives to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the opening of the trial on April 11. The channels - one with the original soundtrack, enhanced for better sound, in Hebrew, German and Yiddish, and the other with simultaneous English translation - are the result of intense cooperation between Yad Vashem and the Israel State Archives, in collaboration with Google.
