  • Description

    PREPARATIONS HAD BEGUN AT THE SUPREME COURT BUILDING IN JERUSALEM MARCH 15 FOR THE HEARING - MARCH 22 - OF ADOLF EICHMANN'S APPEAL AGAINST THE DEATH SENTENCE PASSED ON HIM IN DECEMBER LAST YEAR FOR THE EXTERMINATION OF MILLIONS OF JEWS UNDER THE HITLER REGIME.

    THE DEFENCE BRIEF, SUBMITTED BY EICHMANN'S COUNSEL, DR. ROBERT SERVATIUS, WAS MADE PUBLIC IN JERUSALEM ON MARCH 13 BY JUSTICE ITZHAK OLSHAM, PRESIDENT OF THE SUPREME COURT.

    A REPETITION OF HIS EARLIER DEFENCE, FROM THE PLEA THAT EICHMANN WAS "A LITTLE COG" IN THE NAZI EXTERMINATION MACHINE TO THE CLAIM THAT ISRAEL HAD NO RIGHT TO TRY HIM BECAUSE HE WAS BROUGHT TO ISRAEL AGAINST HIS WILL, WAS CONTAINED IN THE DEFENCE COUNSEL'S BRIEF.

    DR. SERVATIUS ALSO ASKED PERMISSION TO CONSULT A BOOK HE SAID EICHMANN HAD WRITTEN IN PRISON AFTER THE TRIAL.
