OPERATION FINALE: THE CAPTURE AND TRIAL OF ADOLF EICHMANN
February 19 – June 18, 2017
Main Special Exhibition Gallery
The dramatic story behind one of the world’s most notorious escaped Nazi war criminals being brought to justice is told using recently declassified artifacts from the Mossad, Israel’s Secret Intelligence Service. This is the first time this exhibition has ever left the State of Israel and the first exhibition in the United States to fully document the pursuit, capture, extradition and 1961 trial of a principal perpetrator of The Final Solution.
Operation Finale: The Capture and Trial of Adolf Eichmann is a co-production of Beit Hatfutsot – The Museum of the Jewish People, Tel Aviv, Israel; The Mossad – Israel Secret Intelligence Service; and the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage, Cleveland, Ohio.
