Moshe Peariman's 'Capture and Trial of
Eichmann' Incorporates Many New Details
Hitherto Unpublished About Historic Case

Moshe Pearlman is one of
Israel's most dinstinguished per-
sonalities, although he no long-
er is in government service.
Born in England, he served in
the - British army during the
last war, went to Palestine
where he joined the Haganah,
helped in rescue operations of
Jews from Central Europe and
the Balkans, served in the Is-
rael army during the War of
Liberation, then became direc-

made an issue of lack of Jew-

Gurion's adviser on public af-
fairs. Now a Jerusalemite, he
is the author of four important
books. He resumed his writing
career in 1960 and his latest
work, "The Capture and Trial
of Adolf Eichmann," just pub-
lished by Simon and Schuster,
may well emerge as the most
authoritative on the subject.
Pearlman has made a deep
study of the Eichmann case.
Even before the capture of the
arch-Nazi in 1960, he had al-
ready gathered material of
greatest importance to the case.
In this impressive and vol-
uminous account, Pearlman be-
gins with "Prelude to. Capture,"
and describes how the captors
detected that the man who
posed as Ricardo Klement in
the San Fernando suburb of
Buenos Aires really was Eich-
mann. Details of the capture
are accompanied by a full ac-
count of the chase for the mass

Details about the man on
the run, his eluding the pur-
suers, the resumption of the
chase, the eventual capture
are filled with dramatic oc-
curences that had not been
reported previously.

Pearlman earlier had written
a book, "The Capture of Eich-
mann," which commenced his
narrative continued in the new-
est book. He is factual, the
great reporter who knows how
to gather facts, the historian
who understands the signifi-
cance of perpetuating data
about the world's arch-criminal
who was part of the most cruel
elements of destruction in man-
kind's history
Many books have been writ-
ten on the Eichmann case, but
it is doubtful whether, for his-
torical purposes, any one of the
previous ones begins to match
this one in completeness, in
the thoroughness with which
the facts have been gathered
for the record.

Introducing the readers to
the historic courtroom, Pearl-
man reviews the preliminary
arguments, devotes space to
an analysis of the crime for
which Eichmann was being
tried and portrays the crim-
inal, as he was seen by his
friends and colleagues, as he
was analyzed while he was

The electric appliances you have in your homes are a part of your way of
living. Some electrical uses are so important that it is hard to imagine being
without them. Light bulbs, radios and refrigerators come quickly to mind as
examples of what I mean.
Just a few years ago, television swept into our homes to add another
enriching page to daily living. Edison was among the very first. Detroit-area
sponsors of a TV program because--firm believers in the merit of this new elec-
trical device—we were eager to support and encourage this young struggling
To tell you factually about worthwhile, new electrical uses has always
been, I feel, a responsibility. We are in a position to know about them more
quickly and more thoroughly than most other people.
What of electric heat, one of the newest?
There is no finer home heating system. In degree of comfort achieved, in
convenience, in adaptability to diverse living habits, electric heat is unexcelled.
The family which enjoys electric heat receives full value for its cost.
As for the costs, last month we announced a new all electric residential
rate for those Edison customers who heat electrically and who use only electric
appliances in their homes. The net result of the new rate is a lower average unit
cost for electrical service for this particular kind of home. It is always pleasant
to announce a decrease in cost of electric service, especially so when the saving
is substantial, as in this case.
This lower rate is evidence of our desire to provide you with the best
possible service at the lowest possible cost. This is our constant purpose.
