These gripping and affecting books help teens understand the heroic, infamous, and little-known people of the Holocaust.With his electrifying capture by Israeli commandos in Argentina and his dramatic public trial in Jerusalem, the Nazi bureaucrat Adolf Eichmann came to personify one of the most horrifying aspects of the Holocaust, what the famous philosopher Hannah Arendt called the "banality of evil."

    Adolf Eichmann: Engineer of Death by: Ruth Sachs Adolf Eichmann: Engineer of Death is a biography of a Nazi official during the Holocaust. This book includes his life before the war, details of his career as a Nazi, and his capture/trial. In my opinion, he was a horrible man, but an intelligent man. I also believe he should not be forgotten, because he did a lot of very important things. These are some of the important events from the book. Adolf became a “Jewish Expert”.

This book includes his life before the war, details of his career as a Nazi, and his capture/trial. In my opinion, he was a horrible man, but an intelligent man. I also believe he should not be forgotten, because he did a lot of very important things. These are some of the important events from the book. Adolf became a “Jewish Expert”. Through his office he took all Jewish property in exchange for passage out of Germany. This worked well, but he soon became bored at a desk job and wanted something more. He rose rapidly through the ranks and soon was placed in charge of organizing a system to transport Jews to death camps. He also personally chose Zyklon B as the gas to use at these camps. This gas killed much faster, this allowed the Nazis to kill thousands more per day. Next, he ordered a death march resulting in hundreds of thousands of victims. Finally, you learn how he managed to evade capture for years in Argentina. He was, of course, captured and his trial was the first ever that was televised worldwide. Adolf Eichmann was found guilty of so many charges that it took two days to read it all, and he was hung. By reading this book, I expanded my knowledge regarding how the Nazi party worked, and they were able to do so much destruction. I give the book 3 out of 5 stars on account of its useful information, but I disliked the lack of action or excitement. I would recommend this book to anyone doing research on Nazi officials or the Holocaust. But if you are like me and want a historical fiction story, rather than simply informational text, this wouldn't be the book for you.

    Adolf Eichmann is about a man who grew up in the Hitler world. The purpose of the book is to teach readers how it was like living in Eichmann’s shoes while working for Hitler. The author really told me how it was like working as a Holocaust member. Although this book was based on a historical person, I always felt like I was in Eichmann’s shoes. The importance of this book is teaching people of what it was like during the Holocaust. There really was no way out for Jews.

There really was no way out for Jews. Before reading this book, I had little knowledge about this historical event. After reading this book, I had more knowledge about what happened. A lot of things I was very oblivious to, but now I’m not. I understand completely. This book really opened my eyes a bit more about the topic. I had no favorite parts, to me it was just another serious historical book. I found the book to be alright. It’s a book that you read and move on from it. Although, I would recommend this book for younger ages who are very curious of what the past was like before they were born. This book, all in all, was informational and something to remember. If you end up reading it yourself, well, you’re in for an emotional ride.

    I read the book Adolf Eichmann: Engineer of Death, a biography, by Ruth Sachs. “I will leap into my grave laughing because the feeling that I have five million human beings on my conscience is for me a source of extraordinary satisfaction,” is a quote from the Engineer of Death himself. The purpose of this book, along with incorporating this quote, is to inform the reader about who Adolf Eichmann was and his role during the Holocaust.

The purpose of this book, along with incorporating this quote, is to inform the reader about who Adolf Eichmann was and his role during the Holocaust. The author tries to communicate how much Eichmann contributed to the horrifying event known as the Holocaust. The author effectively communicates this thesis. This book has widened my knowledge on the Holocaust. Adolf Eichmann contributed to killing millions of Jews, while being sure that everything he did, could be traced to someone of a higher rank. He personally chose Zyklon B as the gas for the gas chambers. Gas chambers were used to annihilate Jews, and these were thought to be “humane” as well as time efficient. I found this book useful in the act of learning about the Holocaust. I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to learn more about the historic genocide known as the Holocaust.

    Adolf Eichmann: Engineer of Death. This book is not as engaging as it could be, considering the content . The author doesn’t give any sense of suspense, when there should be! The author is repetitive at times about the topic and makes the book uninteresting, in my opinion. The book could have been more exciting! She could have taught us about this man and also made it an exciting page turner, but that was not accomplished. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn about the Hol Adolf Eichmann: Engineer of Death. This book is not as engaging as it could be, considering the content .
