Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil (Classic, 20th-Century, Penguin)
Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil (Classic, 20th-Century, Penguin)
von Hannah Arendt

4.0 von 5 Sternen Report on the Ridiculous Trial of a Pathetic Nazi, 11. Februar 1998
Arendt provides an in-depth examination of the trial of Adolf Eichmann, and leads one to believe that although he is responsible for the death of millions of jews during World War II, he is not the criminal mastermind nor the sociopath he was suspected to be. Arendt's account paint's Eichmann as a bumbling fool who is willing to sacrifice lives in order to please his superiors and experience the pleasure one derives from being obedient. By the end of the book I could see him as nothing but a sickening buffoon, one who is aware of morality but defies it so that he may ascend through the ranks of the Third Reich. However, Arendt also poses interesting questions in regards to the legality of this highly peculiar trial. By the end, I came to the conclusion that although Eichmann was guilty of heinous acts of carnage, he was not fairly tried. I would feel more comfortable with his execution if I believed he had received a trial more conducive to the defence's needs and less irregular.
