Speaker on Eichmann at the Y

Splitting Hairs remains an active fan and supporter of the Y’s lecture program, which brings first-rate information and speakers to our areas.

The latest offering involves new evidence about Adolf Eichmann. Forest Hills is to this day a tightly knit community where issues surrounding the Holocaust still hit very close to home. 

Newly revealed evidence on the postwar international manhunt for Adolf Eichmann, one of the architects of the mass murder of Europe’s Jews, gives an unprecedented glimpse into how Eichmann could have evaded capture for fifteen years, as well as details of the capture itself.  On Tuesday, April 28, at 1:30 p.m. best-selling author Neal Bascomb will discuss his new book, Hunting Eichman

Bascomb, the first journalist in fifty years to thoroughly reexamine the evidence, had access to newly declassified information, also tracked down former Nazi soldiers and right-wing radicals who hid Eichmann in Buenos Aires, as well as traveling to Israel to meet with legendary Mossad operatives.  Basomb’s new book details new evidence that both the German security services and the CIA knew of Eichmann’s whereabouts, but never revealed it to the Israelis.  It also tells the story of how Eichmann slipped out of Europe and how his sons recruited members of a radical nationalist group in Argentina to help search for their father.
