Tuviah Friedman, who died on January 13 aged 88, was a Nazi hunter who helped discover the whereabouts of Adolf Eichmann, the SS officer who masterminded the transportation of millions of Jews to their deaths at such camps as Auschwitz and Treblinka.
"As the war ended Eichmann went into hiding, first in a Catholic monastery in Italy. Then in 1947 he fled to South America under a false name. An international manhunt petered out and the trail went cold. Even the Israelis, struggling to establish their new nation, invested few resources in hunting down those responsible for the Holocaust. It was therefore left to freelance Nazi-hunters such as Friedman (and the better-known Simon Wiesenthal) to remain on the trail."Read the full obituary here: Tuviah Friedman - Telegraph:
