 Adolf Eichmann
Eichmann's acquired expertise in "forced emigration"--in less than eighteen months approximately 150,000 Jews left Austria--and extortion was to prove an ideal training-ground for his later efficiency in "forced evacuation," i.e., the registering, assembly and deportation of Jews to extermination centres in the East.
For the next six years Eichmann's office was the headquarters for the implementation of the 'Final Solution'; though it was not until the summer of 1941 that his 'resettlement' department began the task of creating death camps, developing gassing techniques and organizing the system of convoys that were to take European Jewry to their deaths.
Though arrested at the end of the war, Eichmann's name was not yet widely known and he was able to escape from an American internment camp in 1946 and flee to Argentina.

 BBC News | EUROPE | Adolf Eichmann: Architect of evil
Yet, when we examine the life of Adolf Eichmann, the SS officer who oversaw the logistics of the Holocaust, and whose prison memoirs are finally to be made public, we see a glimpse of the darkness at the soul of a man.
Eichmann learned Hebrew, visited pre-war Palestine and, after Nazi Germany annexed Austria in 1938, he was involved in organising the deportation of the Jews from Germany.

Eichmann was born on March 19, 1906, in the Rhineland, the son of an accountant.
Eichmann offered an alternative: "emigration." He set up the Central Office of Jewish Emigration and devised an assembly-line process lasting less than an hour, during which Jews were rapidly granted all the documentation they needed to emigrate; stripped of all their belongings and their citizenship; and then assigned exit visas that expired 24 hours later.
Eichmann allegedly described the assignment as "a fantastic opportunity," one in which he could set new records for the speed of the annihilation process.

 Guardian Unlimited Books | Review | Review: Eichmann by David Cesarani
Eichmann, diligent worker and dutiful son, grew up in a milieu where dislike of Jews was unremarkable; where little animosity was displayed towards individual Jews but "Jewry" was viewed as an alien body in the German national organism.
Eichmann first showed his teeth in 1938 in Austria, speeding up Jewish emigration and devising a funding mechanism whereby the wealthy paid for the emigration of the poor, a blatant scam that made sense only in the context of discrimination and terror.
Eichmann, by contrast, was on the verge of squalor.
