Born today.. Adolf Eichmann SS mastermind
Otto Adolf Eichmann 19 March 1906 – 1 June 1962) was a German-Austrian SS – Obersturmbannführer and one of the major organizers of the Holocaust, referred to as the “Final Solution to the Jewish Question” in Nazi terminology.
A mastermind behind creating Dachau prison, methods of training men to be ruthless no matter the race. Dachau had every race, color, and creed. Even Germans who did not follow party lines were treated ruthlessly and executed as taring for SS Officers. He should have been tortured for life but was hung by Isreal
He was tasked by SS-Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich with facilitating and managing the logistics involved in the mass deportation of Jews to ghettos and extermination camps in Nazi-occupied Eastern Europe during World War II. Eichmann was captured by the Mossad Israelis in Argentina on 11 May 1960 and subsequently found guilty of war crimes in a widely publicized trial in Jerusalem, where he was executed by hanging in 1962.
Here is a fairly great article on him.
