5:00 p.m. Reception | 6:00 p.m. Presentation
Join the Museum for the opening of our newest special exhibition Operation Finale: The Capture & Trial of Adolf Eichmann. Presentations will be given by the exhibition’s Chief Curator, Orit Shaham Gover, from The Museum of the Jewish People at Beit Hatfutsot and former Mossad agent and curator of the exhibition, Avner Avraham. Operation Finale marks the debut of the Museum’s new special exhibition space, located on the first level of the Hall of Democracy pavilion and will be open for viewing throughout the evening.
Operation Finale follows the trial of the head of the Nazis’ homicidal “Jewish Department,” Adolph Eichmann, who zealously managed the transport of millions of innocent people to death camps and vanished after World War II. Photographs, film, and recently declassified spy artifacts reveal the dramatic secret history behind the daring abduction and globally broadcast trial of a principal perpetrator of the Final Solution.
Operation Finale: The Capture & Trial of Adolf Eichmann is a coproduction of The Mossad: Israeli Secret Intelligence Service; Beit Hatfutsot, The Museum of the Jewish People, Tel Aviv, Israel; and the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in Cleveland, Ohio.
Sponsorship for Operation Finale, which will be on view from October 17, 2019, to January 5, 2020, is generously provided by Perry and Marty Granoff.
