1961: The trial of Adolf Eichmann, a German Nazi lieutenant colonel and one of the major organizers of the Holocaust, begins in Jerusalem. After World War II, Eichmann had fled to Argentina, where he lived under a false identity until being captured by Mossad operatives in 1960. He would be found guilty on 15 counts, including crimes against humanity and war crimes, and executed by hanging in 1962.
