Gabriel Bach, who served as Deputy Prosecutor during the trial of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann, will highlight a discussion on Wednesday night centered on that event and defending against modern extremism.
Hosted at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem, he will be interviewed in a program hosted by the Rutgers University Miller Center for Community Protection and Resilience and The International March of the Living.
“It is a distinct honor to bring this event to Jerusalem and give further voice to the incredible lifetime experiences of Justice Bach,” said Paul Miller, Founder of the Miller Center. “Few events in recent history have shown the power of justice to overcome evil as did the Eichmann Trial and it is therefore critical that these memories continue to be taught and preserved for the benefit of future generations.”
Justice Gabriel Bach was born in Germany before coming to Palestine. He became a highly-respected legal mind in the early days of the State of Israel and served as one of three prosecutors in the infamous trial against the highest ranking ever captured Nazi official. Justice Bach would later go on to serve on the Israeli Supreme Court and has written and lectured extensively on contemporary legal issues.
Eichmann was found guilty of war crimes and executed in 1962.
