The coverage of the Eichmann trial in Jerusalem in 1961 is regarded as one of the first international media events. Within the framework of the project, East and West German print media, contributions from news broadcasts as well as feature films and documentaries from 1961-1962 were evaluated. The material for the DVD was then selected and background information compiled.
