review 2: In 1960 my mother was asked to go back to the Memphis area from NC by her former boss Mr. Herzog. He wanted her to run his business while he and his wife went to Isreal for Eichmann 's trial. I was nine years old at the time and had no knowledge of WWII and the Holocaust. My mother said the Herzog family went to spit on Eichmann because all of their families had been killed in the camps. I couldn't understand why that was so important. It started me on a lifetime of reading all I could on the war and the people affected by a regime that wanted to run the world and be populated only with people they approved of. This story of the hunt and capture of a war criminal filled in years that dedicated agents and civilians gave of themselves to seek justice in a lawful manner. I only wish I had been old enough and aware enough to have talked to the Herzog's about their feelings at the trial when a guilty verdict was given. I think of them every time I read anything about the Holocaust and hope they felt some sense of justice for their fathers and mothers and siblings and their extended families. I hope everyone got a bit of peace and relief in bringing a killer to justice. It is unimaginable that there are people that are willing and able to do horrible things to their fellow human beings. The perseverance of the Israelis is the heart of this story. Knowledge is the power to never let this happen again. less
