Former SS-Obersturmbannführer Adolf Eichmann (born on 19 March 1906) was captured by Mossad agents in Argentina in May 1960 and was accused of participating in war crimes and crimes against the Jewish people, including organising the murder of six million Jews during the Holocaust. After his arrest he was brought to Israel to stand trial. During the months that followed, Eichmann was interrogated by chief inspector Avner Werner Less. The interviews (in German) were conducted using archival documents from the Third Reich and consisted of 76 audio recordings. The first interview took place on 29 May 1960, the last on 15 January 1961. The recordings were transcribed, after which they were revised by Eichmann using the recordings. Photo-copies of the transcriptions were bundled and a limited number of copies were printed. Adolf Eichmann was trialled and found guilty, after which he was executed on 1st June 1962.
