Hunting Adolf Eichmann (Episode #110Z)

KQED Life: Sat, Jul 28, 2012 -- 1:51 AM

Adolf Eichmann was the SS officer charged with the Final Solution, the man charged with transporting the Jews to the Nazi extermination camps. In 1945, Eichmann was arrested by the Allies, but the next year - unrecognized as the arch villain he was - he escaped and disappeared. Isser Harel, chief of Mossad, Israel's legendary intelligence agency was determined to hunt down Eichmann. His task was to get to Eichmann and put him on trial before rogue members of the Avengers, the group of Jews dedicated to killing all Nazis, got to him first. In Autumn 1957, the Israeli Foreign Ministry got a phone call from the public prosecutor of Hesse, Germany, saying that Eichmann was alive and living in Argentina. The information was passed on to Isser Harel. Harel flew to Argentina to personally supervise the mission with a 30-strong team and on May 11, a Mossad agent grabbed Eichmann and dragged him into a car. A week later, he was drugged and smuggled out of Argentina in an El-Al plane. In 1961, Eichmann was put on trial in Israel, televised before the world, found guilty of crimes against humanity and hanged.

The Angel of Death (Episode #107Z)

KQED Life: Sat, Jul 28, 2012 -- 1:00 AM

Joseph Mengele experimented on adults and children in the Auschwitz death camps. He was a prime target and was, for many years, the world's most wanted criminal. The Hunters were Simon Wiesenthal, the U.N. War Crimes Commission and even Mossad. But none of them succeeded. The method Wiesenthal used to track Mengele was the following up of disparate clues, no matter how obscure. He would scour newspapers from all over the world, looking for unusual names, or sightings of possible Germans in unlikely places, such as small towns in South America. He suspected he was being sheltered by a well funded Nazi organization - and he was right. Throughout years of chasing, Mengele always got away. He drowned in Latin America in 1979.
