  ::Adolf Eichmann::
Adolf Eichmann was a SS officer who planned with meticulous detail the sending of Jews and other groups to death camps such as Auschwitz-Birkenau, Treblinka and Sobibor.
In 1941, Eichmann had been promoted to Obersturmbannführer and he was appointed the commander of the Gestapo's Jewish Division of the Religions Department.
He performed his task with zeal and it is reported that on occasions Eichmann was heard to boast that he had sent 5 million Jews to their deaths as a result of the efficiency of the rail network he controlled.

 Adolf Eichmann - Open Encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Adolf Eichmann (March 19, 1906 — June 1, 1962) was a high-ranking official in Nazi Germany, and served as an Obersturmbannführer in the S.S. He was largely responsible for the logistics of the extermination of millions of people during the Holocaust, in particular, Jews, which was called the "final solution" (Endlösung).
Eichmann had even been sponsored, by the SS Race and Settlement Office, to take a trip to Palestine and study aspects of the Jewish Homeland.
Eichmann's involvement with the SS Underground Group ODESSA is also a mystery as there is evidence that Eichmann had contact with the group but did not actively participate in ODESSA activites.

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.

 20th WCP: Eichmann, the Banality of Evil, and Thinking in Arendt's Thought
Arendt's perception that Eichmann seemed to be a common man, evidenced in his transparent superficiality and mediocrity left her astonished in measuring the unaccounted evil committed by him, that is, organizing the deportation of millions of Jews to the concentration camps.
Eichmann portrayed the factual example of a kind of evil manifestation that was not found in the traditional dimensions.
Eichmann, by the fact that he was not able to exercise the faculty of thinking, could not find any profundity with regard to his deeds.

 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.

 Alex Eichmann, California Squash Legend
Though Eichmann was only 5 foot, 9 inches and 160 pounds, the arm strength he had developed as a pitcher and bowler enabled him to generate significant power, especially on his forehand drives, and his agility and multi-front athleticism made him an excellent retriever with noteworthy stamina.
Eichmann attributes his first-round win over Gulmast Khan, Sharif's younger brother, in large part to the frequent practice sessions that he and Niederhoffer scheduled as a run-up to that tournament, but in the second round he lost decisively to The Champ himself, who would go on to win that Nationals without losing a single game.
Eichmann ran every aspect of the club, from giving lessons to handling court bookings to making sure the towel area was well stocked, and, once the word swiftly got around, the best players in the area started showing up to practice with Eichmann and tune their games for upcoming tournaments.

 Amazon.ca: 20th Century Eichmann In Jerusalem: Books: Hannah Arendt   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Far from being evil incarnate, as the prosecution painted Eichmann, Arendt maintains that he was an average man, a petty bureaucrat interested only in furthering his career, and the evil he did came from the seductive power of the totalitarian state and an unthinking adherence to the Nazi cause.
Throughout the course of the book Arendt restates the arguments made against Eichmann by the prosecution, when they are adequate she leaves them as is. However, when the arguments fall short of Arendt's standards she takes the liberty of showing the flaw of the procedure, the argument, and its role in the trial.
Eichmann in Jerusalem is a classic in the study of human nature, totalitarian politics, and political theory, deservingly.

SS-Obersturmbannfuehrer Karl Adolf Eichmann (1906-1962) was head of the Department for Jewish Affairs in the Gestapo from 1941 to 1945 and was chief of operations in the deportation of three million Jews to extermination camps.
By 1935 Eichmann was already working in the Jewish section, where he was investigating possible "solutions to the Jewish question." He was even sent to Palestine to discuss the viability of large scale immigration to the Middle East with Arab leaders.
It was Eichmann who organized the Wannsee Conference of January 1942, which focused on issues related to the "final solution of the Jewish question." From this point Eichmann assumed the leading role in the deportation of European Jews to the death camps, as well as in the plunder of their property.

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.
Adolf Eichmann's tragedy lies not in that he willed himself to do evil but that, because of his unquestioning loyalty to the state, he was unable to think for himself, to comprehend the magnitude of his crimes.

 Guardian Unlimited Books | By genre | 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.

It was Eichmann's responsibility to solve the endless logistical problems involved in transporting Jews to the death camps.

From that point on Adolph Eichmann bizarrely cooperated fully, completely, both before and after he was taken to a predetermined safe house, a man apparently resigned to his fate, possibly relieved, even to the point of helping remind the agents of little neglects that could jeopardize their mission.
Yet Eichmann made the trains run on time, knowing full well eventually that these trains were destined for the crematoria and the deaths of "millions of Jews" (note: let all Holocaust revisionists take note that Eichmann did not object to the numbers of Jews who were murderered by the Nazis but candidly admitted them).
Eichmann said he knew and felt his dilemma (whether or not he felt it to be a dillemma at the time I would wager against).
