Yablonka (Jewish history, Ben-Gurion U. of the Negev) believes that a more extensive study is required to understand the integration of Holocaust survivors into Israeli society, and that Eichmann's 1961 trial for crimes against Jews during World War II constituted a turning point in their social and cultural status in Israel. The Hebrew original, Medinat Yisra'el neged Adolf Aikhman was published by three Israeli publishers in 2001. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

The State of Israel vs. Adolf Eichmann is a comprehensive examination of the Eichmann trial - hailed as a landmark study when it was published in Israel in 2001 - that reveals how the trial marked a turning point in Israel's national consciousness. Hanna Yablonka, one of Israel's leading historians, begins her narrative with the dramatic capture of Eichmann in Argentina in 1960 and describes the controversies that surrounded his abduction - the UN condemned it, and it strained Israel's new and profitable relationship with West Germany - and the emotionally wrought trial itself. She delineates the impact of the trial on the many disparate factions of Israeli society and makes clear how, in the unexpected and penetrating light of the trial, Israelis changed their notions not only about their country's own society, but about their place in the world as an independent state.
