The House on Garibaldi Street is the true story of one of this century's most audacious intelligence operations - the kidnapping of Adolf Eichmann by the Israeli Mossad. Eichmann was the top Gestapo officer personally responsible for carrying out Hitler's Final Solution and the genocide of six million European Jews. After the war Eichmann escaped to Argentina, but in 1960 the Mossad, Israel's secret foreign intelligence service, located him and sought to bring him to justice.
In a daring operation which shook the world, under the personal command of the legendary Mossad leader Isser Harel, a team of elite agents kidnapped Eichmann and smuggled him to Israel. Eichmann's trial received unparalleled media coverage, and brought home to millions around the world the horror of the Holocaust through its principal co-ordinator. Eichmann was found guilty of genocide and was executed two years later.
