OPERATION FINALE: The Capture & Trial of Adolf Eichman
February 19 - June 12, 2016
The Nazi responsible for the transport of millions of innocent people to death camps might well have lived out his days in Argentina as "Ricardo Klement" if fate, a Holocaust survivor and Israel's foreign intelligence service hadn't intervened. A multimedia exhibition produced by the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in collaboration with The Mossad – Israeli Secret Intelligence Service and Beit Hatfutsot – The Museum of the Jewish People, Tel Aviv, featuring recently declassified artifacts never before seen outside of Israel reveals the secret history behind the capture, extradition and trial of one of the world's most notorious escaped war criminals.
