Nazi SS Officer, Mass-Murderer

Austrian-born, Adolph Eichmann was an early member of the Nazis SS. He became the man responsible within the SS for the "Final Solution of the Jewish Problem," the annihilation of European Jewry.

After the war, Eichmann escaped from US forces and made his way to Argentina but in 1961, Israeli Mossad agents apprehended the fugitive and brought him to Israel for trial.
