Born on March 19, 1906, in Solingen, Germany, Adolf Eichmann joined the Nazi party in 1932, rising quickly through the ranks of the Nazi SS-Obersturmbannführer as he traveled through Nazi-controlled territory in search of Jewish populations. During his trial, Eichmann held firmly that he was just following orders. He was executed by the state of Israel in 1962, in Ramla, Isreal, for his role as coordinator of logistics for "the final solution to the Jewish question."
