USA: CIA knew where nazi criminal Eichmann was. And covered up

Adolf EichmannFrom the Simon Wiesenthal Center in the USA:

June 6, 2006


Recently declassified Cold War-era documents from the National Archives which confirm that the CIA and the West German government knew and suppressed information on the whereabouts [of] Nazi war criminal Adolph Eichmann, one of the chief architects of the Holocaust, constitutes “a black mark on American history,” said the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

“The March 1958 memo from the West German Intelligence to the CIA that confirmed Eichmann’s alias and his whereabouts in Argentina confirms what Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal had already discovered from his own sources and forwarded to Israel and West Germany in the early 50s,” said Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Wiesenthal Center.

“This shocking memo also confirms what Mr. Wiesenthal often said: ‘When the Cold War finally ends and history will ask who won, the answer will be neither the West nor the East but the Nazis.’”

From CNN:

However, in 1958 the West German intelligence service informed the CIA that Eichmann was living in Argentina using the alias Clemens, University of Virginia historian Timothy Naftali said the newly released CIA materials indicate.

The West Germans did not want to see Eichmann captured because they feared what he might say about Chancellor Konrad Adenauer’s national security adviser, Hans Globke, Naftali said.

Globke had served in the Jewish Affairs department of the Nazi government during World War II and was involved in writing laws designed to remove Jews from German society.

“The CIA, which worked closely with Globke, assisted the West Germans in protecting him from Eichmann,” said Naftali.

Eichmann remained at large until May 1960, when the Israeli government discovered his whereabouts and captured him in Argentina, where he was living under the name Klement.

  1. “US suppressed [Adolf ] Eichmann whereabouts”

    The historians, who examined newly released CIA documents,
    told a news conference that America’s use of war criminals in
    Cold War intelligence mainly produced unreliable information,
    sometimes with disastrous consequences for U.S. interests.

    “We have not found any evidence that hiring these tainted
    individuals brought little other than operational problems and
    moral confusion,” Naftalisaid.>>

    “Far more than shameless.”
    A Survivor Talks About Croatia’s ‘Museum’ at Jasenovac

    Part 1

    Interview with Smilja Tišma (Belgrade)
    President, Organization of Survivors

    Interviewer and translator: Jovan Skendžić


    Introductory note

    Regarding the 27 November 2006 opening of the Croatian government’s exhibition at the Jasenovac death camp complex [1], which exhibition I criticized [2], and which criticism the Wiesenthal Center’s Dr. Efraim Zuroff has disputed [3], perhaps the most important people to hear from are the Jasenovac system survivors themselves. Although some survivors attended the opening ceremony, their views have gone unreported outside the Balkans. We are honored to publish the following interview, dealing with the exhibition and other issues, with Ms. Smilja Tišma (pronounced Smilya Tishma), who as a child was incarcerated in death camps of the clerical-fascist Ustaše, and who is now President of the Organization of Survivors.

    Table of contents of Part 1

    1. The exhibits at the Jasenovac ‘museum’ are inaccessible and incomprehensible.

    2. The exhibition falsely cuts the number of people murdered at Jasenovac and trivializes the genocide against the Serbs.

    3. The exhibition does not even name any Ustaša (pronounced oo-stash-ah) leaders; it does not display the Ustaše’s horrific murder weapons; it does not display evidence of the key role of the Catholic Church.

    4. Like the Ustaše before them, the exhibition’s creators falsely portray Jasenovac as a ‘labor camp.’

    5. The Museum committee contacted and made plans with the Organization of Survivors, then snubbed them.

    6. The survivors were ignored and abused at the opening ceremony.


    Note on translation: The name of the organization of which Ms. Smilja Tišma is the President is literally translated, “Association of Prisoners and Descendents of Prisoners of Genocide Camps in the Independent State of Croatia from 1941 to 1945.” I have used the abbreviated, “Organization of Survivors.”

    “Far more than shameless…”
    A Survivor Talks About Croatia’s
    Holocaust-Denying Exhibition

    Part 1

    Interview with Smilja Tišma
    President, Organization of Survivors

    Interviewer: Jovan Skendžić


    1. The exhibits at the Jasenovac ‘museum’ are inaccessible and incomprehensible.

    Mr. Jovan Skendžić: Would you have some time to tell us your impressions of the opening of the Jasenovac exhibition?

    Ms. Smilja Tišma: Of course. I would find time for this even if I did not have it.

    They pretend that it is a Museum and a new presentation – but it is not a Museum. You enter into dark corridors, dark rooms with only weak electric bulbs illuminating the so-called exhibits. At the places of presentation there are monitors that show photographs in a loop. For example, one depicts the transport of miserable, poor children. You do not know who these children are, or where they are from, or where they are being taken, or whom they belong to. You do not know what is happening or where.

    At other places you will have to squat down almost to the floor, as there is a bulb there, or bend all the way down, if you are able to bend so much and have had the luck to notice the light in the first place. Bending, you will read a label telling you what will be presented. After this you will have to wait what feels like ten minutes until the presentation starts and then you will have to quickly read the text they show on the monitor.

    It is inaccessible for an average person and even worse for old, frail individuals who are already under considerable anxiety, as their families perished here.

    2. The exhibition falsely cuts the number of people murdered at Jasenovac and trivializes the genocide against the Serbs.

    Tišma: At another place, just by chance, I noticed a panel which claims that sixty-nine thousand people perished in the Jasenovac death camp. That’s a fraction of the real number. The Serbs are presented seventh on the list of groups that were killed, after others, such as Slovenes and Slovaks, who in fact comprised a small percentage of the victims and who were killed because of politics, not because of their ethnicity, whereas hundreds of thousands of Serbs were murdered in an attempt to eliminate the Serbian people.

    3. The exhibition does not even name any Ustaša (pronounced oo-stash-ah) leaders; it does not display the Ustaše’s horrific murder weapons; it does not display evidence of the key role of the Catholic Church.

    Skendžić: Does the exhibition contain Ustaša artifacts such as knives, chains, mallets?

    Tišma: The physical tools the Ustaše used to murder people are nowhere to be seen there. I was at the Croatian government’s earlier exhibitions, in 2004 and 2005, and it was the same as at this latest exhibition. They never display the artifacts the Ustaše used to murder people.

    Skendžić: Do they present any documentary evidence such as clergymen’s letters, church newspapers or testimony from post-war trials, showing the role of the Catholic clergy in sanctifying the Ustaše and carrying out the actual killings? [4]

    Tišma: No. Nothing is mentioned.

    Skendžić: Is there at least a map of the Independent State of Croatia or some information about Croatian fuehrer Ante Pavelić? At least a photograph of him on the wall panels?

    Tišma: Not even a photograph of Pavelić; all the less of his henchmen.

    4. Like the Ustaše before them, the exhibition’s creators falsely portray Jasenovac as a ‘labor camp.’

    Skendžić: Does it say in the exhibition that Jasenovac was a death camp?

    Tišma: No, they say it was a concentration and work camp.

    Skendžić: They actually say it was a labor camp?

    Tišma: Yes. They have the same explanation in their brochure and that’s also what they said in their speeches at the opening ceremony.

    I’ve written about this. What kind of a ‘work camp’ is it when they take children, some of them just born, some still in their mother’s womb, to be murdered there? In Sisak [a camp 160 km from Jasenovac] where I was first taken, there was a huge room where they separated children from their mothers. Croatian Ustaša families adopted some; others they sent to Jasenovac; thousands, including me and my two sisters and brother, they sent to Jastrebarsko, which they set up exclusively for children. That’s without even mentioning Jasenovac itself, or Stara Gradiška, or Sisak, or all their other camps.

    On 27 January, which the United Nations has designated as Holocaust Remembrance Day, the government of Serbia and the Jewish community held a commemoration in Belgrade. Mr. Cadik Danon, a former Jasenovac inmate – he spent 17 months there, escaping in 1943 – gave a speech. Braco – that’s his nickname – said that at the end of the war the Croats managed to wipe out all traces of Jasenovac. Now they have done it again, in a new way: none of the Ustaša murder tools, the heavy mallets, the knives, the brick factory oven that was constructed for baking bricks but was used to burn people, who were thrown in alive and fully conscious or already half dead, none of that is on display or can be read about there.

    Skendžić: What about the infamous photographs that the Ustaše took, staging phony scenes presenting Jasenovac as a labor camp in preparation for the [World War II] International Red Cross visit? Are those photographs displayed on panels?

    Tišma: There is nothing left of any of the photographs that were displayed before, in the museum that was at Jasenovac before the breakup of Yugoslavia, no photographs of any kind on the panels. Again, you have to stand next to TV monitors and wait until some photographs appear, but these will be presented without explanatory text, so a visitor enters some space and views something and then exits without any notion where they were or what they have seen. It is all really well thought out with a clear intention to camouflage the crimes, the murders, to camouflage who did it and how it was done and why. Braco Danon mentioned in his speech that the Ustaše took pleasure in their craft, mutilating their victims, making them die over periods that easily lasted for hours. The exhibition hides all this. The organizers did their best to present Jasenovac as a labor camp.

    5. The Museum committee contacted and made plans with the Organization of Survivors, then snubbed them.

    Skendžić: It seems to me quite brave that you dared to go there, to that place of your suffering.

    Tišma: They invited us. The museum contacted the Organization of Survivors in Belgrade proposing that we contribute to the exhibition. We agreed that they would film ten or fifteen survivors giving eyewitness accounts about various Ustaša death camps: Jasenovac, Jastrebac, Stara Gradiška, Sisak, Jastrebarsko.

    They were to send a cameraman, at their expense, in May of 2006, maybe mid-June at the latest. I found the survivors who were to participate. People started asking when it would happen. I phoned the museum but nobody answered. I wrote to Nataša Jovičić, the exhibition director. Nobody replied.

    Despite this, we went to the opening. Three of us represented our Organization of Survivors: me, as President; Mr. Dragoljub Acković, a Roma representative, the child of a survivor; and Ms. Brigita Knežević, who had been ‘arrested’ as a child, not two years old, and brought to the Jastrebarsko camp. She was later adopted; that is why she survived. All told, there were 40 to 50 survivors at the opening.

    6. The survivors were ignored and abused at the opening ceremony.

    Skendžić: Did they ask you to make a speech?

    Tišma: They did not even acknowledge our presence.

    Skendžić: Not even to introduce you and say – ‘We have some survivors with us’?

    Tišma: Their speakers did not address us or even mention our presence to the public.

    We came by invitation. They gave us name tags. We were told that right after speeches by Croatian Prime Minister Sanader and President Mesić, and after the ribbon was cut, then we, the survivors, would enter first. You see, we were supposed to be important, but when the time came to enter, we were pushed around.

    The event was on a concrete-paved area in front of the Museum. After the speeches, we were shoved aside by the crowd, pushed off our feet, onto the grass. As there had been some rain for a few days, we got quite muddy. We were among the last to go in.

    Entering the exhibition, many could not orient themselves. As I told you, the corridors are barely lit.
