AS ONE of the most hunted men in the world, Adolf Eichmann had every reason to be afraid. Often referred to as the architect of the Final Solution, it was Eichmann who had masterminded the transportation of millions of Jews to their deaths at such camps as Auschwitz and Treblinka. Almost five years after the end of the war, the unrepentant Nazi lay as still as he could inside a cupboard in a mountain hut on the Austrian-German border. Eichmann listened as a border policeman spoke to the guide who was helping the fugitive over the frontier. The guide led Eichmann down into Kufstein, from where Eichmann made his way south to Italy. Equipped with a Red Cross passport in the name of Riccardo Klement, Eichmann then boarded a boat, landing in Argentina weeks later.
