Hannah Arendt Discusses Philosophy, Politics & Eichmann in Rare 1964 TV Interview | Open Culture

Hannah Arendt's work has come under some critical fire lately, what with the release of the Margarethe Von Trotta-directed biopic, starring German actress Barbara Sukowa as the controversial political theorist. At issue in the film and the surrounding commentary are Arendt's (allegedly misleading) characterizations of the subject of her 1963 book Eichmann in Jerusalem , as well as her ambivalent-some have said callous, even "victim-blaming"-treatment of other Jews.
