Tel Aviv "Diaspora Museum" is opening an exhibition on Eichmann kidnapping and trial


At the beginning of February 2012, the “Diaspora Museum – Beit HaTefuzot” located in Tel Aviv, is going to open an exhibition on the SS - murderer Adolf Eichmann. Furthermore, the Mossad is releasing secret documents to the wider public. Those documents will also be shown at the exhibition. 

Adolf Eichmann was arrested by Mossad agents in May 1960. He was flown from Buenos Aires to Israel where, later on, his trial took place. He was found guilty and was executed on 31 May 1962. 

For those who have never been to the Tel Aviv “Diaspora Museum”: It is definitely worth a visit. It is not only a religious museum but it shows the Jewish history of the Diaspora. How Jews used to live in different countries and the most extraordinary exhibition: Various small models of former Eastern European Synagogues. Most of those Synagogues were destroyed by the Nazis during the Second World War. It was very impressive seing the Synagogue of the Vilna Gaon which was also destroyed by the Germans. 

The "Diaspora Museum" is located in Ramat Aviv and the best way to get there is by taking bus no. 25 from King George Street in Tel Aviv.
