The 1961 trial of Adolf Eichmann captured for the public the horror of the Final Solution. But getting the Nazi known as the Architect of the Holocaust” to a courtroom in Jerusalem took no less than 15 years.

Exactly how was Eichmann caught? In Hunting Eichmann: How a Band of Survivors and a Young Spy Agency Chased Down the World’s Most Notorious Nazi, Neal Bascomb tells the riveting story of the Mossad team that tracked down the war criminal in Argentina.

Bascomb talks with Nextbook about Eichmann’s attitude toward the Jews, the personal motivations driving the spies who caught him, and how Eichmann behaved once he was apprehended.
