Eichmann’s End: Love, Betrayal, Death
A film by Raymond Levy • Germany • 2010 • 90 MINS • COLOR • German, Spanish and Hebrew with English subtitles.
Two years after the end of the war, Adolf Eichmann lived, undetected and under a false name, as a chicken farmer in northern Germany. But in 1950 he disappeared. The love affair between Eichmann’s son and the daughter of Lothar Hermann, a Holocaust survivor who immigrated with his family to Argentina after the war led to Eichmann’s eventual capture by the Mossad.
The film is based on interviews conducted with Adolf Eichmann by the Dutch former SS officer turned journalist Willem Sassen in Buenos Aires in 1957.
This event is part of the 2011 Holocaust Education Series organized by the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre. The series also includes a panel on Eichmann with a historian and a survivor, and a discussion on contemporary anti-semitism. Be sure to check out the program!
