Eichmann’s Son Quits United States After Federal Investigation

Download PDF for this date

Nicolas Eichmann; 25-year-old son of Nazi criminal Adolf Eichmann, has left the United States following protests of his anti-Semitic expressions here by the Jewish War Veterans of the U.S.A. and an investigation by the Justice Department.

A spokesman for the U.S. Immigration Service disclosed that Nicolas Eichmann had departed “voluntarily” from the United States via the Miami International Airport on a flight bound for South America. It is presumed he is now back in Argentina.

Nicolas Eichmann’s anti-Jewish and pro-Nazi statements here, expressed while propagandizing on behalf of his father, generated violent controversy and led to vigorous protests. The protests in turn, brought in a Federal investigation and Nicolas Eichmann departed from the country after only 25 days visit. He had arrived with the stated intention of remaining much longer to write and to seek American backing for his father who is now on trial in Israel.
