Background: An East German lawyer, Professor Karl, arrived in Jerusalem Feb 22 "armed with 52 incriminating documents of evidence against Adolf Eichmann". He told journalists that he had arrived in a private capacity to represent clients who had "suffered at the hands of Eichmann". The Professor stated that he himself was a victim of concentration camps.
He said that the object of his visit was to be represented at the trial in order to name the Nazis who originally collaborated with Eichmann and who are now living in Western Germany.
Defence lawyer Robert Servatius announced in Cologne Feb 23 that the trial of Adolf Eichmann would commence in Jerusalem on April 10. This news follow weeks of intensive preparation for the case by both prosecution and defence in Israel.
Gideon Ausner Attorney General of Israel, who is to lead the prosecution against the former Gestapo Colonel, submitted the formal indictment against Eichmann Feb 23 to the district court in Jerusalem.
