Eichmann Will Be Moved from Prison to Prison Until Sentence is Imposed

Download PDF for this date

Adolf Eichmann will be moved from prison to prison every few weeks until a final decision is made on the death sentence imposed on him last Friday, the Israel Prison Commission said today.

The switches of prison locations was directed to deal with the “extreme possibility” of a conspiracy by fellow-prisoners to kill the former Gestapo colonel. Eichmann currently is back in Ramie prison, working again on his memoirs. An appeal from the death sentence has been filed with the Israel Supreme Court which is not expected to act before next March on the issue.
