Eichmann’s wife visited him in Israeli prison prior to execution, archives reveal

Israeli authorities allowed Nazi arch criminal Adolf Eichmann a visit from his wife Vera two months before he became the only person ever to be executed in the Jewish State, information published by the Israel State Archives Blog has revealed.

Sunday marked the 53rd anniversary of Eichmann’s execution by hanging on May 31, 1962. Ahead of the anniversary, the archive blog published the protocol from a meeting of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee in which the question of whether to allow a request by Eichmann’s wife to visit her condemned husband was discussed. The blog also reported that  notes from the  log of Ramle Prison, where Eichmann was housed prior to his execution, prove that his wife was allowed to make a secretive visit to the Nazi murderer.
