In the most celebrated apprehension of any Nazi war criminal, Mossad agent Peter Malkin surprised “Final Solution” mastermind Adolf Eichmann in Argentina in 1960, and smuggled him out of the country disguised as an El Al flight attendant. (Found guilty of genocide, Eichmann was hanged in 1962.) Malkin will discuss how he trapped his prey, and show clips from the recent made-for-cable movie, The Man Who Captured Eichmann. The appearance coincides with an exhibit, “Argentine Journal,” of Malkin’s drawings of Eichmann’s capture and trial, which he rendered on pages of the South America guidebook he used. At 7:30 p.m. at the B’nai B’rith Klutznick National Jewish Museum, 1640 Rhode Island Ave. NW. $24. For reservations call (202) 857-6572. (MJ)
