Operation Finale: The Capture and Trial of Adolf Eichmann
On View July 16 to December 17, 2017

The Nazi responsible for the transport of millions of innocent people to death camps might well have lived out his days in Argentina as “Ricardo Klement,” if fate, a Holocaust survivor, and Israel’s foreign intelligence service had not intervened. This multimedia exhibition features recently declassified artifacts never before seen outside of Israel. It reveals the secret history behind the capture, extradition, and trial of one of the world’s most notorious escaped war criminals.

Operation Finale: The Capture and Trial of Adolf Eichmann is a co-production of The Mossad – Israel Secret Intelligence Service; Beit Hatfutsot – The Museum of the Jewish People, Tel Aviv, Israel; and the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage, Cleveland, Ohio.

Specialized display technologies and next-generation natural language processing provide an intimate experience with a survivor who is uniquely qualified to offer personal reflections and answer direct questions about his firsthand experience with the Holocaust.
