Adolf Eichmann Receiving Spiritual Counseling

Apr. 25, 1962 - A Protestant minister who has been meeting with Adolf Eichmann in his prison cell in Israel has described the former Nazi officer as “the hardest man I ever saw.” The Rev. William Hull gave his impression of Eichmann in a letter to relatives in Winnipeg. Mr. Hull, who has lived in Jerusalem since 1935 and is pastor of a nondenominational mission there, has visited Eichmann twice in his cell. The former Nazi officer is awaiting action on his appeal against a death sentence. Eichmann at first refused spiritual guidance, but he now has a Bible and has agreed to accept spiritual advice, according to Mr. Hull. His first meeting with Eichmann was on April 11 and lasted half an hour. His second meeting was on Good Friday and lasted an hour.
