5:00 p.m. Exhibit Viewing and Reception | 6:00 p.m. Presentation
Join The National WWII Museum as we welcome author Neal Bascomb in a discussion on his works based on the capture and trial of Adolf Eichmann.
At the end of World War II in 1945, Adolf Eichmann, the head of operations for the Nazis' Final Solution, walked into the mountains of Germany and vanished from view. Sixteen years later, an elite team of spies captured him at a bus stop in Argentina and smuggled him to Israel, resulting in one of the century's most important trials—one that cemented the Holocaust in the public imagination.
A book signing will immediately follow the presentation.
This event is free and open to the public but please register to attend. For more information, please call 504-528-1944 x 484.
