As Israel’s Attorney General from 1960 – 1963, Hausner served as the chief prosecutor for the Adolf Eichmann trial in 1961. He was born in Poland and made aliyah with his family in 1927. In addition to his term as Attorney General, Hausner spent four terms as a member of the Knesset. At the conclusion of the Eichmann trial, he requested the death penalty because the accused “had no mercy in his heart.”
