Adolf Eichmann Found Guilty Adolf Eichmann, one of the architects of the Holocaust, is found guilty of crimes against humanity at his trial in Israel. Eichmann, who was sentenced to death, had been living in Buenos Aires under an assumed name. He was captured by Israeli secret service agents and spirited out of Argentina. The Argentine government was furious with Israel for violating its 'sovereign rights,' but allowed Israel to try Eichmann for the sake of justice.

Is there really an appropriate punishment for this character? Eichmann got the 'Alcatraz Ascot' and his cremated remains were scattered at sea so he would have no grave for supporters to visit.

Israel's Secret Service, the Mossad, is one of the most effective agencies in the world. It might take years, but if they're loking for you, they'll find you. They eventually got all the kingpins from the Munich Olympics massacre.

They allowed Israel to try him for the sake of justice? Little did they know that the Mossad would have found a way to bring him to justice one way or the other.

I should know the answer to this, but I don't. Was the book written by Robert Shaw, entitled 'The Man in the Glass Booth', the account of Eichmann's trial?
This book was also made into a film starring Maximilian Schell, and it was excellent.

There was an excellent documentary about the capture of Eichmann on Canada's History Television several years ago. They interviewed one of the Mossad agents who was in on the capture. He said they wanted desperately to take Eichmann alive so he could be put on public trial. They were prepared to kill him if they couldn't sneak him out of Argentina.

Naomi, your facts about the book and movie you mentioned are correct.

Technically the trial was not legal as Eichmann was kidnapped in order to stand before the tribunal. He got no sympathy from me, however. In fact the televised trial was what inspired me as a child to study law.
