Operation Finale

Operation Finale (2018) is a historic movie which depicts how a group of Israeli secret agents abducted and brought to Israel the notorious Nazi SS officer Adolf Eichmann - the man who masterminded the "Final Solution" - killing 5 to 6 million Jews during the World War II.

"Lightning flashed across the Argentine skies as Ricardo Klement stepped off a bus after finishing his shift as an assembly line foreman at a Mercedes-Benz automotive plant. As he walked to his small brick house in a middle-class Buenos Aires suburb on May 11, 1960, he passed by a chauffeur and two men working under the open hood of a black Buick limousine. Suddenly, Klement was grabbed by the men and hauled kicking and screaming into the back seat of the vehicle, which sped off into the night.

Everyone involved in the abduction was playing a high-stakes game of deception. Klement was actually Adolf Eichmann, the notorious Nazi SS lieutenant colonel who masterminded the transport of European Jews to concentration camps, and the men with the limousine were Israeli secret service agents."

Eichmann was subsequently found guilty of war crimes in a widely publicized trial in Jerusalem, Israel. He was executed by hanging in 1962.

As many as 9,000 Nazi officers and collaborators from other countries escaped from Europe to find sanctuary in South American countries. Brazil took in between 1,500 and 2,000 Nazi war criminals, while between 500 and 1,000 settled in Chile. However, by far the largest number—as many as 5,000—relocated to Argentina. Many of the Nazis who escaped to South America were never brought to justice.
