What: The Florida Holocaust Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida is hosting the blockbuster exhibition Operation Finale: The Capture and Trial of Adolph Eichmann which opened to the public on February 10, 2018. The curator of the exhibition, career Mossad agent Avner Avraham, has agreed to extend his time in the United States to speak in conversation, along with The Florida Holocaust Museum’s Executive Director, Elizabeth Gelman, at a few select venues to share “behind the scenes” stories of the Mossad capture of Adolph Eichmann and the importance of his trial.
Why: Operation Finale: The Capture & Trial of Adolf Eichmann is the first exhibition in the United States to fully document the pursuit, capture, extradition, and trial of a Nazi war criminal. Fifty-seven years ago, Adolf Eichmann, who had been in charge of transporting millions of European Jews to death camps, sat in a courtroom for a trial that would be among the first in history to be completely televised. The trial captivated millions of people across the globe and it was the first time that many of them learned the details of the Holocaust.
When: Wednesday, February 14, 2018 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Where: Temple Beth Sholom, 1050 S Tuttle Ave, Sarasota, FL 34237.
