The Capture of Adolf Eichmann
After Germany's defeat, Eichmann fled to Austria. He lived there until 1950, when he moved to Argentina using false papers. A team of Mossad and Shin Bet agents captured Eichmann and brought him to Israel to stand trial on 15 criminal charges, including war crimes, crimes against humanity, and crimes against the Jewish people.
