Download PDF for this date

Adolf Eichmann, charged with crimes against the Jewish people and with crimes against humanity, will go on trial here next March 6, it was officially announced here today.

Bureau VI of the Ministry of Police, which was set up especially to conduct the formal investigations in connection with the prosecution of Eichmann, today handed over to the Attorney General a sheaf of reports on the Eichmann case. The reports were compiled here on the basis of documentary evidence dug up in Washington archives dealing with the Nazi regime, and in European countries. Some of the material in the dossier had come from Eichmann himself, obtained from him during his questioning in Israel.

The Ministry of Justice today officially notified Eichmann’s attorney, Robert Servatius, of Cologne, informing him of the date, time and place of trial.
