Hannah Arendt


"In the pursuit of justice and closure in the aftermath of the Holocaust, many presumed it would come in the form of Adolf Eichmann's trial. But Hannah Arendt, a Jewish writer who had fled Germany prior to Hitler's ascent to power, would engage not only the Jewish people, but humanity in general in her assessment of the how any individual could be transformed into a perpetrator."
