French television launched a month-long series of daily broadcasts from the 1987 trial of the Nazi official known as the “Butcher of Lyon.” The trial, in which Klaus Barbie was jailed for life for sending thousands of French Jews and Resistance fighters to the death camps, was the first French trial by jury to be filmed. Barbie died in prison in 1991.
