Today in History
1961 Adolf Eichmann tried as a war criminal in Israel
In May 1960, the Israeli Security Service concluded a fifteen-year manhunt by capturing Adolf Eichmann in Buenos Aires, Argentina. They took him to Israel, handed him over to the Israeli police, and set into motion a trial that brought the full brutality and logistical detail of the Holocaust before a court and the public for the first time.
Eichmann, a former Nazi official, played a key role in implementing the genocidal policies of the so-called "Final Solution." He organized the Wannsee Conference, where the implementation of the operation was laid out, and served as the chief SS officer in charge of transporting the Jews to the extermination centers. For these crimes and others, he was indicted on fifteen separate counts, including "crimes against the Jewish people" and "crimes against humanity."

I remember my first experience in New York City was eating lunch at the Automat. Of course I was 8 years old and though it was the coolest thing I had ever seen. I strill though it was pretty cool when I was 16 and went back.
