Adolf Eichmann, born in Germany was one of the main organizers of the Holocaust. He attempted the first mass deportation of jews from the so-called Greater German Reich.
In August 1938 he was in charge of the "Office for Jewish Emigration" in Vienna set up by the SS as the sole Nazi agency authorized to issue exit permits for Jews from Austria, then Czechoslovakia and later the old German Reich. Eichmann's trial in Jerusalem before the Jerusalem District Court began on April 11, 1961. He was indicted on 15 criminal charges, including crimes against humanity, war crimes, crimes against the Jewish people, and membership in an outlawed organization. Eichmann was hanged on May 31, 1962, at a prison in Ramla, Israel.
