Karl Adolf Eichmann A.K.A. "The Architect of the Holocaust" (March 19, 1906 - May 31, 1962) was a Nazi and SS-Obersturmbannführer.
Eichmann was born in Solingen, Germany to a businessman. At the suggestion of Ernst Kaltenbrunner, he joined the Austrian branch of the NSDAP. Throughout his career, he became one of the top Nazis in the SS Organization. 1942, Heydrich made Eichmann attend the Wannsee Conference. This got him the right to send Jews to German death camps. After WWII, Eichmann was taken into U.S. Custody. He eventually eluded the Nuremberg War Trials and stayed in hiding in South America. He tried to evade his pursuers with the name Ricardo Klement, but then he was exported into Israel. At his trial, his lawyers were Dr. Robert Servatius and Dieter Winkelmann. Despite his pleas, Eichmann was eventually found guilty by the judge. Before his death, he rejected his last meal and did not wear a hood while he would be hanged. Before midnight in 1962, Eichmann was finally hanged.
His body was later cremated and his ashes were scattered at sea beyond the territorial waters of Israel by an Israeli Navy patrol boat.
