New data surfaces about Eichmann trial

From the Jerusalem Post

The prosecuting attorney in the trial of Adolf Eichmann, retired Supreme Court justice Gabriel Bach, said on Monday that a psychiatric evaluation conducted on the Nazi leader following his capture in 1960 suggested that the man responsible for the deaths of millions during the Holocaust had ambivalent sexual tendencies.

According to Bach, the psychiatric evaluation was one of the first things he had asked for after Eichmann was captured and brought to Israel. He said he had anticipated that Eichmann might plead insanity, and wanted to have an independent evaluation at the ready.

Bach said he had sent an anonymous copy of Eichmann’s evaluation along with evaluations of other people to a Swiss expert. In his response, the expert said Eichmann’s psychiatric profile was that of a person with unprecedented murderous tendencies.
