The White Crow


Subtitled Eichmann in Jerusalem, The White Crow is set in the basement office of an Israeli police station in the summer of 1960. Adolf Eichmann, German SS officer and one of the major organizers of the Holocaust, is under interrogation. He has been tracked down in Argentina and brought to Israel to stand trial for his crimes. The play explores Eichmann’s psyche and goes beyond his defense that he was merely following orders.
