The House on Garibaldi Street

This book, simply put, is the most exciting, fascinating, engrossing book I have ever read. Impossible to put down, and if so, to stop thinking about it. The most amazing thing is: It really happened; this is no fiction. It is the capture of the nazi criminal Adolf Eichmann by the Mossad chief at the time in Argentina. It reads as a thriller book but it's all true.

 

From the planning of the coup, so to speak, to the final bringing to Israel in a regular civil airplane(¡!) it is short of amazing. The author really has no difficulty in telling the story, and there is no need in telling anything but what happened and how they captured the man. Every detail in the story is meaningful. The author has no need at all to embellish anything, it just tells itself.

 

Frankly, fiction will seem pathetic to you after reading this one. And if you are interested in the subject: the hunt for nazi criminals; how nazis who escaped Germany at the end of the war made it in a foreign society and mingled with the locals; or are interested in the minds of this type of persons... or how an operation like this one -ilegally capturing a person in another country and bringing him to court in Israel: the politics, the failed diplomacy, the infrastructure, the detailed planning and secrecy and the execution of the plan... then this one will give you all.

 

As I said, this is not literature. This is for real. And reality is far more exciting than the imagination in this case.


"Es cierto que el Romano es libre de hacer todo lo que quiera. Pero también lo es que tiene que soportar las consecuencias de sus actos. No importa que se haya equivocado, que le hayan engañado o incluso forzado: un hombre no se deja forzar: etiamsi coactus, attamen voluit. Es libre; pero si distraído, imprudente o atontado, prometió pagar una determinada cantidad y no puede pagarla, se convierte en esclavo de su acreedor."

Rudolph von Ihering

“Slavery, protection, and monopoly find defenders, not only in those who profit by them, but in those who suffer by them.”

Frédéric Bastiat

On the true nature of the Castro Revolution in Cuba: "The revolution was a cover for committing atrocities without the slightest vestige of guilt ... we were young and irresponsible. We were pirates. We formed our own caste ... we belonged to and believed in nothing -no religion, no flag, no morality or principle. It's fortunate we didn't win, because if we had, we would have drowned the continent in barbarism."

Jorge Masetti -In the Pirate's Den

La anarquía, es decir, la ausencia de fuerza estatal, no es una forma de Estado, y cualquiera que acabe con ella por el medio que sea, el usurpador nacional o el conquistador extranjero, rinde un servicio a la sociedad. Es un salvador, un bienhechor, porque la forma más insoportable de Estado es la ausencia de Estado.


Rudolph von Ihering
