Leading academics opened an exhibition exploring the war crimes trial of one of the most notorious architects of the Holocaust.

With Me Here Are Six Million Accusers, which documents the 1961 trial of Adolf Eichmann in Jerusalem, launched at the London Jewish Cultural Centre in North End Road, Golders Green, on Tuesday.

It was opened with a discussion involving Prof David Cesarani, author of the award-winning book Eichmann: His Life and Crimes, and Dr David Silberklang, a senior historian at the Holocaust memorial organisation Yad Vashem.

The exhibition of artefacts from the trial – which resulted in the execution of Eichmann, a former SS lieutenant colonel – runs until June 19.
