Eichmann passport found in files
by UPI

BUENOS AIRES - A student doing research in court archives in Argentina found the passport Nazi official Adolf Eichmann used to enter the country.

Eichmann's wife turned the document over to the court when she filed a complaint about his kidnapping by Israeli agents. Eichmann was hanged in Israel in 1962 for his part in organizing the deportation of Jews to death camps.

The passport is now in the hands of the Holocaust Museum in Buenos Aires, the BBC reported.

Eichmann managed to escape Europe after World War II, using a false passport issued by the Red Cross in Bolzano in the name Ricardo Klement. He had been captured a couple of times but hid his identity.

A number of other top Nazis managed to get to South America after the war, especially to Argentina.
