Nazism & Catholicism: Adolf Eichmann’s Red Cross Passport


Although it is true fascist Italy ‘officially’ changed sides near the end of WWII, and stated its opposition to German Nazism, nevertheless, it is also true that the Roman Catholic Church (with its Vatican headquarters situated in the heart of Rome) continued in its decades-long support for the political far-right. This has led many to speculate that Italians sympathetic to German Nazism, (the Roman Catholic Church was complicit in the holocaust), worked to save prominent Nazi German officials from Allied justice following the defeat of Adolf Hitler in 1945, and there are good grounds for this assessment. Whilst the CIA was busy opposing Socialist and Communist Movements around the world (which included a failed attempt to destabilise China through its Tibetan region), historical records state that US Intelligence knew that Adolf Eichmann was alive and well and living in Argentina in the late 1950’s. Eichmann was eventually captured by Israeli operatives, tried for his crimes against humanity, and executed by hanging in 1962 (in Israel). What is interesting is that leading Nazi Adolf Eichmann was able to escape war-torn Europe at the end of WWII (evading Allied capture in the process), through the help and assistance of the Italian section of the Red Cross, and the Roman Catholic Church (in Italy and elsewhere). Eichmann could only have got a fake Red Cross Passport if a Roman Catholic priest signed his application form, confirming Eichmann under a false name. This service was preformed by the Franciscan priest named Father Eduardo Domoter. Red Cross Passport number 100940 was issued to Adolf Eichmann under the false name of ‘Ricardo Klement’ in Genoa, on the 1st of June, 1950. This suggests that Eichmann was extensively protected by the Roman Catholic Church (and others sympathetic to Nazism), for at least five years after the end of WWII, before eventually being assisted to flee Europe for Argentina. These facts have led to the wide-spread assumption that many more leading Nazis escaped justice at the end of WWII through the help of the world-wide Roman Catholic Church.
