Video of Professor Barrett’s Interview of Eichmann Prosecutor Gabriel Bach

In late August, Professor John Q. Barrett, working with camera crews in New York and Jerusalem, videotaped an interview with Israeli Supreme Court Justice (retired) Gabriel Bach.

In 1961, Bach was Israel’s deputy prosecutor in the trial of former Nazi SS officer Adolf Eichmann, a principal architect of the Holocaust. Today, Justice Bach is the only surviving prosecutor from the Eichmann trial, which captured worldwide attention through television and print coverage and gave prominent voice to Holocaust survivors.

The edited Barrett-Bach interview now is available online. It was played on September 12 at the Paul S. Miller Distinguished Lecture program, sponsored by the International March of the Living and Rutgers Law School, in which Professor Barrett also lectured.
