Extremely scarce, complete transcript of the interrogation of Adolf Eichmann. Confidential documents, issued by Bureau 6 of the Israeli Police.

After being captured by Mossad agents in Argentina in May 1960, Adolf Eichmann was brought to Israel where had been interrogated on a daily basis for a period of eight months, for a total of 275 hours. His interrogations were led by Avner Less (1916–1987) of Bureau 6, a special unit of the Israeli Police, assigned to develop evidence for Eichmann’s trial. Less was the only investigator allowed to speak to Eichmann. All statements and questions were recorded on tape, then transcribed and typed. Subsequently, the transcription was handed to Eichmann for correction and confirmation, in Less’ presence, and later forwarded in copies to the prosecutors. The present volumes contain the entirety of these corrected transcripts, counting a total of 3564 pages.

Besides the transcripts, the first volume contains an explanation of the process of the interrogation and the “Confidential” documents by Commander Avraham Selinger, the head of Bureau 6, as well as the transcript of the conversation between Eichmann and Commander Ephraim Hofstädter, who delegated the interrogation to Less on 30 May 1960.

Adolf Eichmann (1906–1962) was a high-ranking Nazi officer, one of the main architects of the Holocaust, facilitating and managing the logistics of the deportation of millions of Jews to ghettos and extermination camps. He stood trial in Jerusalem in 1961, was found guilty and was executed in 1962.

Scarce, an utmost rarity on the market.
