Arendt died of heart failure on December 4, 1975, in New York City. She was laid to rest on the campus of Bard College, in Annadale-on-Hudson, New York, where her husband had taught philosophy for many years (he had died in 1970). Much of Arendt's collection of books and papers are now stored at the college, which continues to run the Hannah Arendt Center for Politics and Humanities in her honor.
Arendt's life was the subject of a German film, Hannah Arendt, written and directed by Margarthe von Trotta. Barbara Sukowa plays Arendt and Janet McTeer co-stars as Arendt's longtime friend, writer Mary McCarthy, in the biographical film.
