Download PDF for this date

A search was started today by authorities in Australia for a former Nazi who tried to smuggle a piece of razor blade from this country to Adolf Eichmann, while the latter was awaiting execution in an Israeli prison. The piece of blade was sent to Eichmann under a postage stamp affixed to a letter which was intercepted by the Israeli authorities. The person being sought was not identified.
