German Leaflet in Jerusalem Threatens Jews Against Sentencing Eichmann

November 1, 1961
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A leaflet stenciled in German and warning Jews in viciously anti-Semitic language of the “terrible penalty” awaiting them if former Gestapo colonel Adolf Eichmann was found guilty, was found in evening pick-ups of the Jerusalem post office last night.

The leaflet concluded with “Heil Eichmann, faithful to Germany.” Postal authorities could not say whether the leaflet came by mail or in some other way. Eichmann is awaiting judgment after a four-month trial last summer on charges of having master-minded the slaughter of 6,000,000 European Jews during World War II.
