Der Eichmann-Prozess im österreichischen Fernsehen: Ein Medienereignis mit geringer Resonanz

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


Taking stock of the Austrian television coverage of the Eichmann trial (1961) this article analyses how Austrian television reported about the events in Jerusalem. The daily news mentioned the coming event regularly; however, during the proceedings it barely reported about the trial. It was a weekly magazine that sporadically summarised the events in the court room. The analysis shows that Austrian television was mainly interested in Eichmann, ignored all other witnesses and suppressed any link to local and national history.
