The construction site worker realized the true identity of his co-worker Adolf Eichmann and informed the Mossad

The photograph that helped bring Nazi mass murderer Adolf Eichmann was first revealed, along with the identity of the man who delivered it.

This photograph – taken in the early 1950s – shows Eichmann, circled in red, standing next to Gerhard Klammer, a German geologist who worked alongside the notorious Nazi at an Argentine construction company.

Kelmer’s involvement in bringing Eichmann to justice was revealed only last week, 32 years after his death, with his family’s blessing.

He immigrated to Argentina in the early 1950s in search of work, and began working for a Capri construction company in the northern province of Tucuman.

Shortly thereafter, Eichmann joined the same company, calling himself Ricardo Clement. Clammer learned the true identity of his colleague and tried to inform the German authorities.

Clammer knew who Eichmann was because their company, which planned hydroelectric power stations, employed many Nazis, according to a German magazine. woman.

But they ignored his message, and he received no response to the startling advice.

Clammer shared the identity of his former classmate again in 1959 after returning to his homeland.

Captivated by a close friend – a priest who served in the German army, he shared a photo of himself with Eichmann, as well as the address of the home of the mass murderer in Argentina.

Then this information was passed on to the bishop, who, in turn, passed it on to Fritz Bauer. Bauer was a German Jewish prosecutor who made it his mission to hunt down Eichmann.

Eichmann was captured by US forces after World War II, but he escaped from a concentration camp in 1946. He landed in Argentina after living in Germany under a false identity for years, according to Encyclopedia Britannica.

Bauer fled his homeland during World War II, but returned after the fighting stopped.

He was the most powerful Jewish prosecutor in the country at that time. It was widely known that Eichmann fled to Argentina, but Bauer was the only German lawyer intending to bring him to justice.

Bauer had previously received information about Eichmann from a half-Jewish man named Lothar Hermann who had moved from Germany to Argentina.

His daughter went on a date with Eichmann’s son, who bragged about his father’s true identity.

This information sparked a 1957 attempt by the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad to try to track down Eichmann.

But they could not find it, and returned empty-handed.

Bauer traveled to Israel to meet with Mossad chief Esser Harel to pass on Clamer’s information.

Harel and then-Israel Prosecutor Haim Cohen were convinced enough

It was Clamer’s rhetoric that eventually helped the Mossad track down Eichmann in Argentina in May 1960.

Since then, Eichmann has moved from the address Klammer gave him, but Mossad agents are still able to track him from him.

They manage to kidnap him and bring him back to Israel to face justice, in one of the most daring and famous missions ever carried out by government agents.

An eight-man team of Mossad agents arrived in Buenos Aires a month before Eichmann was arrested on false passports, and planned to confiscate him from a bus he regularly took to work.

Their plan was nearly abandoned when he failed to board that bus, but the Mossad crew got lucky when they spotted Eichmann getting off another bus 30 minutes later, and seized him.

He was moved between local Mossad safe houses for nine days. An Israeli doctor then drugged the Nazi killer, dressed as a flight attendant before being loaded onto an El Al plane, and flown to Israel.

Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion shared news of his arrest with the world the next day.

He spent nine months in prison, and was tried for war crimes, genocide, and crimes against humanity in April 1961.

Eichmann was convicted on all counts, and hanged in June 1962. Clammer-Bauer promised not to reveal where the party that led to Eichmann’s arrest came from.

Bauer has kept his word, finally revealing Klammer’s name in a newspaper article published in a German newspaper Friday that finally explains his role in the historic takeover.

The German newspaper “Süddeutsche Zeitung” first mentioned Klammer’s name, according to an Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz, which said that Claimer had attained a “prestigious place in Israeli history.”

Eichmann was sent to Vienna with the task of ridding the city of Jews after the city was annexed in 1938, according to History.com.

He created an effective center for the deportation of Jews and in 1939 was sent to Prague on a similar mission. That year, Eichmann was assigned to the Jewish section of the SS Central Office in Berlin,’ says the website.

In January 1942, Eichmann met with senior Nazi officials at the Wannsee Conference near Berlin, where he was assigned to organize the identification, assembly, and transfer of millions of Jews from occupied Europe to Nazi death camps where Jews were gassed or labored to death.

It is impossible to know the actual number of people killed in the Holocaust, but most sources estimate that six million Jews were killed in the massacre, and that the total

Eichmann’s trial began in April 1961 after his arrest.

He was convicted in December of 15 counts of crimes against the Jewish people, crimes against humanity, war crimes and belonging to a criminal organization, according to the International Crimes Database. The Hague.

Executed by hanging in May 1962 in Ramle Prison, Israel.

Adolf Eichmann – Nazi Architect of the Holocaust

Karl Adolf Eichmann was born in Solingen, Germany in 1906 and lived a “fairly ordinary” life as a traveling salesman in Austria for an oil company before World War II, as described by Encyclopedia Britannica.

Eichmann was the eldest of five children born to a Protestant Calvinist family and attended the same high school in Linz, Austria that Adolf Hitler attended 17 years before him, according to the Eichmann trial by Deborah E. Lipstadt.

Eichmann lost his job at Vacuum Oil Company AG during the worldwide Great Depression and joined the Nazi Party in April 1932, soon becoming a member of the Schutzstaffel led by Heinrich Himmler – better known as the SS.

By October 1934, Eichmann was stationed at the central office of the Sicherheitsdienst – the SS intelligence agency – in Berlin, where he dealt with Jewish affairs. He married his wife Veronica Lebel in 1935 and had four children.

After he became considered an expert on Jewish affairs, Eichmann and his chief Herbert Hagen traveled to Palestine in 1937 to determine if Jews in Germany could voluntarily immigrate there, according to Nazi Hunter: The Wiesenthal File by Alan Levy.

Hagen believed that the presence of so many Jews in Palestine might lead them to create an independent Jewish state – something Reich vehemently opposed.

After Germany annexed Austria, Eichmann was sent to Vienna to organize the immigration of Jews from the city. Nearly 100,000 Jews had left Austria or had been smuggled into Palestine and other countries by the time he left Vienna in May 1939, according to Eichmann: His Life and Crimes by David Cesarani.

Eichmann was then ordered to conduct a similar assignment in Prague before being transferred back to Berlin to work as a member of Himmler’s Central Security Office in the Reich Security Forces in 1939.

That year, Nazi policy changed from voluntary immigration to forced deportation of the Jewish people.

Reinhard Heydrich, the founding chief of the Sicherheitsdienst, ordered his staff to begin gathering Jews in cities in Poland and deporting them to reservations on German soil pending deportation.

Heydrich then chose Eichmann to head the arrangement of all deportations to occupied Poland and the confiscation of Jewish property, according to The Holocaust: Nazi Persecution and the Murder of Jews by Peter Longerich.

Telling Eichmann in mid-September 1941 that Hitler had ordered the killing of all Jews, Heydrich attended the Wannsee Conference of top German leaders in 1942 to plan the extermination of the Jewish people.

Eichmann, now an SS colonel, drafted for Heydrich a list of the numbers of Jews in various European countries and prepared statistics on immigration. He later oversaw the deportation of Jews to death camps at Bełżec, Sobibor, Treblinka, Auschwitz, and others.

Although Eichmann did not make politics, Encyclopedia Britannica called him the “chief executioner” of the Holocaust.

He was responsible for gathering information on the Jews in each district, organizing the seizure of their property, and arranging and scheduling the horrific crowded trains that took the Jews to their deaths.

Eichmann was captured by American forces after the war but escaped from a concentration camp in 1946 and lived in Germany under an assumed name for many years until making his way to Argentina – where he was eventually captured by the Mossad.
