He was a former gasoline salesman charged with organizing and carrying out Hitler's "Final Solution." His capture and execution by Israeli agents in the sixties ended one of the greatest manhunts in history.
Adolf Eichmann embraced his leader's vitriolic hatred of Jews and other "undesirables" with a passion and turned his mind to creating the most efficient and horrifying machine of death the world has ever seen.
BIOGRAPHY® profiles the Nazi monster through exclusive interviews, rare photos and footage including extensive film of Eichmann's trial in 1962. Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal details the 15-year quest to bring Eichmann to justice, while historians trace his rise to power and development of the machinery of the Holocaust. Hear from a former SS officer who worked with him, and meet some of the Israeli agents who captured him.
From his fanatical efforts to eradicate Judaism from Europe to his defense that he was "only following orders," this is a chilling portrait of a human monster.
