Eichmann, Adolf (subject)
Summary"During 1962, in a death cell at Israel's Ramleh Prison, an unusual drama unfolded. It was there that William L. Hull, an American clergyman, accompanied by his wife, began an exhaustive debate with the hated Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann. Here is the story that was never told—here are the actual conversations between the condemned man and his spiritual adviser, and the English translations of three letters Eichmann wrote from the death cell to William Hull. Mr. Hull was the only minister allowed to enter Eichmann's death cell. His purpose was to reconvert Eichmann to the faith of his youth, and, if possible, learn the reasons for Eichmann's monstrous acts against humanity and the Jewish people." —Book jacket
