Operation Finale: How The Israeli Spy Agency Mossad Captured Nazi War Criminal Adolf Eichmann

Leon Watson at the British newspaper the Daily Mail reports on the newly released Israeli documents on the capture of the Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann (seen in the above photo).

Lifting a half-century veil of secrecy, Israel's Mossad spy agency is opening its archive this week to reveal the story behind the legendary 1960 capture of Nazi mastermind Adolf Eichmann.

The 'Operation Finale' exhibit, curated by a Mossad officer who can't be fully identified, displays never before seen items, names and documents that led to Eichmann being snatched in Argentina.

It also discloses new details, such as how forensic experts identified Eichmann by his ears.

Eichmann was in charge of implementing Adolf Hitler's 'final solution,' the plan to exterminate the Jews of Europe. Six million Jews were killed by the Nazis and their collaborators during World War II.
