The Capture & Trial of Adolf Eichmann
The head of the Nazis’ homicidal “Jewish Department” who zealously managed the transport of millions of innocent people to death camps disappeared after World War II. Photographs, film and recently declassified espionage artifacts never before seen outside of Israel reveal the secret history behind the pursuit, capture, extradition and 1961 trial of a principal perpetrator of The Final Solution. This world premiere exhibition is a co-production of Beit Hatfutsot – The Museum of the Jewish People, Tel Aviv, Israel; The Mossad – Israeli Secret Intelligence Service and the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage.
