A7 Radio's "Walter's World" with Walter Bingham
Follow Israel Radio on
It’s 50 years since Adolph Eichmann, the notorious architect and Executor of the Holocaust was caught in Argentina by the Mossad, Israel’s Secret Service, and brought to Jerusalem for trial. The leader of the team was long time Mossad agent Peter Malkin, who relates here how he physically captured him and how he was taken to Israel. A thriller in the true sense of the word. Malkin asks how a man who looks like you and I can commit such atrocities. Also: A report from the Conference on Public Diplomacy that plainly shows why the world perceives
a wrong and distorted Image of Israel and her struggle – and what needs to be done to put this right.
Peter Zvi Malkin
