  • Description

    Crowds of spectators and newsmen thronged entrances to the Community Centre in Jerusalem, Israel, April 11, to see judges, defence and prosecuting counsel, and other principals involved in the trial of Adolf Eichmann, arrive for the first session of a trial that is expected to last some months.

    Robert Servatius, a German lawyer, is defending Eichmann, who is accused by Israel of being responsible for the death of up to six million Jews in Europe during the Nazi regime.

    Another early arrival was Jacob Baror, a deputy State Attorney. He was followed in by Judge Yitzhak Raveh, Judge Moshe Landau, the Presiding Judge, and Judge Benjamin Halevi.
