Otto Adolf Eichmann is born in Solingen. Because of his strong organizational skills, Reinhard Heydrich will place him in charge of managing the logistics behind the Holocaust.

Eichmann will be so committed to the extermination of Jews in Europe that even after Heinrich Himmler orders him to halt work and begin destroying evidence of what the Nazis had been doing, he will continue to organize the deportation of Jews from Hungary to extermination camps still in operation.
