Czech authorities today were investigating a report that Adolph Eichmann, the Nazi “expert” on Jewish affairs, who supervised the deportation to death camps of hundreds of thousands of Jews, was recently seen in Czechoslovakia.

According to a report reaching the authorities, Eichmann recently visited the home of his brother-in-law, former Capt. Lukas, a Czech, in Prague. It is assumed that Lukas may know where Eichmann is hiding.
