Bocaraton Observer - “Operation Finale”

It’s crucial that we never forget the atrocities of the Holocaust, as difficult as it may be to process them. The Holocaust Documentation and Education Center’s Museum in Dania Beach invites South Florida residents to bear witness to “Operation Finale: The Capture & Trial of Adolf Eichmann,” a multimedia exhibition produced by the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in collaboration with Mossad and Beit Hatfutsot, The Museum of the Jewish People, in Tel Aviv. It’s on view through March 31.

Adolf Eichmann, as head of the Nazis’ homicidal “Jewish department,” managed the transport of millions of innocent men, women and children to death camps in occupied Poland. The war criminal might have lived out his life in Argentina if fate, a Holocaust survivor and Israel’s foreign intelligence service hadn’t intervened.

The 4,000-square-foot exhibition focuses on the secret history behind the capture, extradition and trial of Eichmann via 60 original artifacts; 70 photographs; short films; and a video installation, featuring a replica of the bulletproof glass booth from which Eichmann testified during trial
