The family of Adolf Eichmann is reportedly seeking the memoirs written by his father in prison before he was hanged in Israel in 1962 for Nazi war crimes. Since Eichmann’s death, the manuscript has been stored in Israel’s national archives. The national archivist, Avitar Friezel, said Wednesday that the document, which he described as part memoirs, part opinion, should be made available to the public, but that the legal issue of possession must first be resolved.
The Archive of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency includes articles published from 1923 to 2008. Archive stories reflect the journalistic standards and practices of the time they were published.
