The trial of Adolf Eichmann( Visual )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adolph Eichmann, who devised the "Final Solution," the attempt to exterminate the Jews, was the most hated of the Nazis. His 1961 trial, held in an Israeli courtroom and broadcast around the globe, was a benchmark event in the historiography of the Holocaust, especially in Israel where the trial proved a watershed experience for survivors and citizens of the new Jewish state. Employing new video and broadcast technologies, the trial was also a milestone in media and journalism coverage. This absorbing, comprehensive new documentary features detailed accounts of Eichmann's capture, the drama in the courtroom and behind the scenes, and reactions to the trial from around the world (as concentration camp survivors broke down giving their evidence, Eichmann sat impassive & protesting his innocence -- inside a bullet-proof glass booth)
Ariel Sharon( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

He is one of the most controversial political figures of a generation. To millions of hard-line Jews the world over, he is a hero, a bold military commander who engineered stunning victories in the 1967 and '73 Arab-Israeli Wars and a politician who sticks to his beliefs in the face of criticism. To the Palestinians, he is a reviled figure who authorized atrocities during warfare and works to undermine their rights today. Examines his long public life and the tightrope he walks everyday as Prime Minister of Israel
The wonderful kingdom of Papa Alaev( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in Hebrew and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Meet Tajikistan's answer to the Jackson family. Nearly 80, Allo "Papa" Alaev rules his celebrated folk music clan with an iron tambourine. Beginning with his unilateral decision to emigrate to Israel, the gifted musician micro-manages nearly every aspect of their lives, both on stage and off. From every meal made in his kitchen to what instrument each member will play, the patriarch accepts nothing less than total commitment and obedience. Every child and grandchild lives in their single-family house in Tel Aviv. All but one, that is. His only daughter, Ada, chose her own way in life, a sin her father will not forgive. As generations clash over new musical directions, competing personal interests and Papa's advancing age, the family show must go on--but who will lead the band? Set to a blazing tribal soundtrack, drama and drumbeats sing out from every entertaining exchange in this grand family affair -- Publisher
