Eichmann

Synopsis: In 1961 former Nazi Adolf Eichmann is captured by Jewish agents and put on trial. American television producer Milton Fruchtman fervently believes that the trial with its witness accounts of Nazi atrocities should be televised to show the world the evils of the Holocaust and to combat any resurgence of Nazism and joins forces with black-listed director Leo Hurwitz. Despite death threats, reluctance to cooperate from several networks and even resistance from the Israeli prime minister David Ben-Gurion, who fears a 'show trial', the pair persist and move their cameras into the court-room. Edited daily and shown in some three dozen countries the 'Eichmann Show' becomes the first ever global television documentary.

EICHMANN (CONT’D)

But Reichsführer Himmler has noted a

problem. A bullet in a Jew is a

bullet not in an enemy soldier.

Plus, dispatching women and children

this way is... problematic. The men

hesitate. And with 10.3 million to

go- the exact break-down is in

document 171 there- we cannot afford

even a second’s hesitation per Jew.

Now. Within six weeks, the camps of

Belzec, Sobibor and Auschwitz-

Birkenau will be operational. The

MoT, the Foreign Office and we at

the RHSA will strive to relocate all

enemies of the Reich to the camps.

At present, we process about 2000 a

day, but with the zyklone B proposal-

details in appendix C- permanent gas

chambers and a more efficient train

timetable, by next year it will be

that many every hour. By 1949, if we

follow the plans I’ve outlined in

your files, our children will live

and thrive in a Jew-free Europe.

4.

Silence, for a moment. Then, Heydrich KNOCKS the table. All

the others follow suit, BANGING louder and louder. For a

moment, Eichmann basks in the glory. That’s more like it.

As it dies, Heydrich begins to speak. But Eichmann returns to

his collar. Licks his thumb. Tries the stain again. Thistime, it shifts. And, as the sound of SCRATCHING BUILDS-

WE SMASH INTO A RAPID MONTAGE OF THE SIGHTS AND SOUNDS OF THE

FINAL YEARS OF WW2. Stalingrad, Tripoli, the Pacific,

Normandy Landings, the Red Army, the Berlin bombing,

Hiroshima, the liberation of the camps...

Over footage, a mishmash of NEWS ANNOUNCEMENTS, CHEERS,

MUSIC, CHURCHILL AND EISENHOWER proclaiming an Allied victory-

BUT, LOUDER THAN THE NOISE, COMES A BROADCAST

NEWSCASTER (V.O.)

As the Nazi high command arerounded up, several remain missing.

With the world’s eyes turned toNuremberg, the question on

everyone’s lips is: where is Adolf-
