Plot Summary

In 1961, the noted German-American philosopher, Hannah Arendt, gets to report on the trial of the notorious Nazi war criminal, Adolf Eichmann. While observing the legal proceedings, the Holocaust survivor concludes that Eichmann was not a simple monster, but an ordinary man who had thoughtlessly buried his conscience through his obedience to the Nazi regime and its ideology. Arendt's expansion of this idea, presented in the articles for "New Yorker", would create the concept of "the banality of evil" that she thought even sucked in some Jewish leaders of the era into unwittingly participating in the Holocaust. The result is a bitter public controversy in which Arendt is accused of blaming the Holocaust's victims. Now that strong willed intellectual is forced to defend her daringly innovative ideas about moral complexity in a struggle that will exact a heavy personal cost.

Goofs Arendt's article "Eichmann in Jerusalem" was published in five installments in the New Yorker. As Hans Jonas and others read the most infamous passages from "Eichmann in Jerusalem," they are holding the issue of the New Yorker that contained the first installment (February 16, 1963). However, the offending sections appeared in later installments, particularly no. 3 (March 2, 1963). See more »
