The gloves used by Mossad agent Zvi Malchin during Adolf Eichmann’s capture are now on exhibition in the Massuah Institute for the Study of the Holocaust at Tel Yitzhak.
Carmela Menashe tells the story of the gloves used by Zvi Malchin when he captured Adolf Eichmann, beginning in Argentina 50 years ago until they reached the Massuah Museum in Tel Yitzhak. Malchin refused to touch the Nazi criminal with his bare hands. These leather gloves have recently arrived in Israel from the United States, and are part of a permanent exhibition at the Massuah Institute, dedicated to the capture of Adolf Eichmann and his trial in Israel. Aya Ben-Naftali, Director General of Massuah, talks about the exhibition; the then cabinet secretary, former President Yitzhak Navon, talks about events that took place prior to Eichmann’s capture, and the public announcement by the then prime minister, David Ben-Gurion, in the Knesset.
