Download PDF for this date

Adolf Eichmann, the master Nazi war criminal, was traced, tracked down and captured by Israel security personnel alone, the head of Israel’s Security Service declared today in denying a report that a Jew whose family had perished in Nazi gas chambers was the first man to locate Eichmann,

Insisting that no one outside the security services could claim any share in the Eichmann seizure, the security chief also denied reports that the capturers would be given money awards. He Said; “No material prize can take the place of the feeling of satisfaction and contentment of those who found him and brought him here.”
