Eitan, Dov

Dov Eitan was an Israeli defense lawyer who led the successful defense team of John Demjanjuk during his show trial in Jerusalem in 1987. The day before Demjanjuk’s appeal trial before the Jerusalem Court of Appeals was to start, Eitan jumped – or fell, or was thrown – to his death from the 20th floor of a high rise in Jerusalem. The story is recounted by Demjanjuk’s second lawyer, Yoram Sheftel (Sheftel 1994, pp. 243-263).
