Response to other comments

This documentary is supposed to be fake to express the falseness of Eichmann's trial - it was a 'show trial' to hold Nazi war criminals to account.

He was kidnapped and taken to Israel - thought to be home for all Jews and put on trial there even though his crimes were against humanity and committed all over Europe.

Although the outcome of his execution was irrefutably right, the process of getting to it was not.

If you are interested in this you should read a book by Hannah Arendt called 'Eichmann in Jerusalem' to find out more.

Always keep an open mind - sometimes lies need to be told to get to the truth.
