A former Mossad agent, Avner Avraham is a renowned expert on Mossad operations who famously worked to reveal and publicize the insider story of the historic 1960 capture of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann. While working as a Mossad agent, Avraham discovered the original documents surrounding Eichmann’s capture and trial, and, moved to share his findings with a wider audience, curated the world-famous and headline-making museum exhibit “Operation Finale: The Capture and Trial of Adolf Eichmann” and produced an accompanying documentary. With the story now the subject of a major motion picture – MGM’s Operation Finale starring Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingsley – for which Avraham served as a key consultant, Avraham is in-demand for his fascinating insights into this rich chapter of Jewish history and engaging anecdotes on his time as real-life spy.
