Wednesday 2/27/19 The Capture of Eichman [October 2017] 1hour 20 minutes
As a Mossad agent, Avner Avraham discovered original documents, objects, passports and other original remnants in Mossad files that led him to document the inside story of the historic 1960 capture of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann.
Now he’s joined by Eli Rosenbaum, the longest-serving prosecutor of Nazi criminals and human rights violators in world history, who has worked on such cases at the US Department of Justice for more than 30 years. With NYU’s Thane Rosenbaum, hear the fascinating story of Israel’s capture and trial of Eichmann, which stunned the world and brought a taste of justice to a fledgling nation traumatized by the Holocaust, and learn from the master prosecutor Eli Rosenbaum about our own government’s role in bringing Nazis to justice.
