Film: Memories of the Eichmann Trial of David Perlov
Samtal: Filmens producent Yael Perlov & författaren & journalisten Ricki Neuman
Måndag 25 mars kl. 19:00-21:00 Goethe-institut Bryggargatan 12A
David Perlov lays layer upon layer of memory in his film Memories of the Eichmann Trial , a unique historic and cinematic document, composed of interviews conducted by Perlov in his Tel Aviv apartment seventeen years after the Eichmann trial. Those interviewed are Israeli Holocaust survivors and members of their generation, children of survivors and young “Sabras” - native born Israelis. They reflect upon how the Eichmann trial transformed Israeli perceptions of the Holocaust and the survivors and the way it affected them and their families.
Among those interviewed in the film are: Raffi Eitan, who took part in Eichmann's capture in Argentina, Rivka Yosselevska, who gave testimony at the trial - a survivor of the killing pits of the Jews of Pohost- Zagorodski, Belarus, where her entire family was murdered by members of the einsatzgruppen and local collaborators in the summer of 1942, and Stephania and Henryk Ross, who also testified at the trial. Ross, a photographer forced by the Nazis to work at the Lodz Ghetto "Statistics Department", secretly photographed transports to the death camps.
"The moment Roth shows Perlov the hasty movement of drawing out his camera from under his coat and hiding it again is one of the most memorable scenes in the history of the Israeli cinema" (Uri Klein, "Ha'aretz".)
Memories of the Eichmann Trial was shot on 16 mm reversal stock, a format used before the changeover to video broadcasting, and was broadcast only once on Channel 1. The restoration of Memories of the Eichmann Trial to HD format is an initiative of the Yad Vashem Visual Center, with the support of the Israel Broadcasting Authority-Channel 1, the Perlov family and the Forum for the Preservation of Audio- Visual Memory in Israel, in commemoration of fifty years since the Eichmann trial.
