Florida Holocaust Museum visitors taking in 'Operation Finale.'
If you haven't seen Operation Finale: The Capture and Trial of Adolf Eichmann at the Florida Holocaust Museum yet, this Thursday's your chance — FHM will let everyone in for free all day. The exhibit tells the gripping story of how the Mossad, Israel's Secret Intelligence Service, pursued and captured one of the most heinous, evil creatures to walk the earth. Eichmann sent millions of Jews to their death during the Holocaust, and his trial — the first wholly televised trial in the United States — the world watched.

The exhibit also includes tapes from the trials and the glass behind which Eichmann sat as he testified.
