An "Adolf Eichmann Exhibition" is currently being held at the Munich, West German, Burgerbraukeller (beer cellar) where Adolf Hitler started to take over power in Germany. Former inmates have supplied vivid pictures of life in concentration camps, and there are reproductions of letters and statements and pictures of personalities associated with the notorious Third Reich.
The Exhibition has caused something of a stir, because first "visitors" were members of the security police. They had official permission to remove certain exhibits accusing Hans Globke, present West German State Secretary, whose World War Two record is currently being investigated.
One of the confiscated documents was a photographic copy of the signed confirmation by Globke that he had taken an oath of allegiance to Hitler. To help make up for the missing exhibits, however, the police left the letter giving them permission to seize the Globke exhibits. Globke is one of the most controversial characters in the Adenauer Administration.
It is not certain who is organizing the exhibition; but it has been arranged to precede the trial in Israel of Eichmann, the man said to have been responsible for the deaths of six million Jews in Europe during World War Two. Eichmann's trial begins on April 11.
