United Jewish Federation of Stamford, New Canaan, and Darien and UJA-JCC Greenwich have been awarded a grant from the “Shine a Light on Antisemitism” initiative to show The Devil’s Confession: The Lost Eichmann Tapes on Tuesday, December 5 at 7:00 pm at the Ferguson Library, Dudley N. Williams Auditorium, One Library Place, Stamford.The Ferguson Library is a co-sponsor of this film.
The Devil’s Confession: The Lost Eichmann Tapes unearths secret recordings of Adolf Eichmann, one of the chief architects of the Holocaust’s Final Solution, which definitively shows his active involvement in the planning and implementation of one of the greatest atrocities in world history. Recorded in Buenos Aires in 1957 by Dutch journalist and former SS-Officer Willem Sassen with the intention to prove the Holocaust did not happen as portrayed and without Hitler’s knowledge, these tapes show the opposite and expose Eichmann, in his own voice, stunningly contradicting claims he made during his eventual trial for crimes against humanity, war crimes, and crimes against the Jewish people.
The Devil’s Confession: The Lost Eichmann Tapes sheds light on the hidden forces that concealed the recordings, altering the arc of history as it has been understood for more than 70 years, and provides irrefutable proof against Holocaust denial and the pernicious antisemitic hatred from which it springs. “Shine A Light on Antisemitism” is an initiative designed to provide resources to stand up to Jewish hate across North America. This year, more than ever, incidents of antisemitism have reached record levels. UJF is grateful to the Illinois Holocaust Museum for making this film available. This program is free but registration is limited.
