Nazism a Faith to Eichmann, Ready to Kill Any Race, Says Pastor

Download PDF for this date

The Rev. William Hull, the pastor who visited Adolf Eichcoann twice weekly in his death cell prior to the Nazi’s execution last May, said during a visit here today that Eichmann was “never really anti-Semitic” and would have carried out orders to “kill members of any other religious or racial group” if he had been given such orders.

Rev. Hull said that, in a sense, Nazism “was a religion to Eichmann. He was completely lost to Christianity or any other moral religious institution.”
