Fritz Bauer: A Heroic Story - 55 years after the end of his trial in Jerusalem, it has become common knowledge that Adolf Eichmann was captured by Mossad agents in Argentina and brought to justice in Israel. It was a German Jew, the Hessian attorney general Fritz Bauer, who provided pivotal information about Eichmann’s whereabouts in South America to the Israeli authorities. Join German Historian Anette Isaacs as she pays homage to this true hero and indomitable spirit who confronted post-war German society with its guilt (and denial thereof) and who initiated the Auschwitz Trials of the mid-1960s.
