Re: Eichmann tapes

In Going over the Gaby Weber You Tube video and pdfs about Eichmann in Argentina I stumbled on this comment among the reader reviews of Alexander Jacob's translation of Eichmann's Memoir FALSE GODS published by Black House

The commenter is referencing a review there which asks readers to read the CODOH thread on The Eichmann Tapes (specifically Page 3) in which a poster to the forum states the tapes have never been made available...

"Contrarily to what this review claims, the Sassen tapes ARE available (in the German State Archives) and have been painstakingly studied in their entirety by German historian Bettina Stangneth, who writes extensively about them in her recent book "Eichmann Before Jerusalem".

The tapes aren't hearsay. The documentary about Eichmann by Guido Knopp (available on Youtube) contains several audio clips from the tapes.

Additionally, this book has nothing to do with the tapes, which were recorded in Argentina in the 1950s. This is a manuscript written by Eichmann in prison in Israel in 1960-1962. https://www.amazon.com/Eichmann-Before.../dp/0307950166"

Has anyone read Eichmann Before Jerusalem? And if so, does Bettina Stangneth write about him confessing on the tapes to witnessing a gassing at Klum and shootings? Klum? Where and at which camp was was that? Where was he supposed to have witness the shooting?

LIFE magazine editor C.D. jackson was captured on film at the liberation of Buchenwald lying to the people of the nearby town of Weimar who had been frog marched out to the camp for a propaganda film being shot there by Billy Wilder. They were made to view an atrocity table that included the legendary human skin lampshade and two shrunken heads presented as evidence by US prosecutorThomas Dodd at the Nuremburg IMT.

Would you be so kind and place a link, when you are citing a video that is available somewhere?
The existence of the tapes may not be hearsay, but what is on tapes may still be hearsay.

What I would be interested in, is Adolf Eichmann's connection with the intelligence services especially Israeli ones.
In the late 1940s, Walther (Walter) Rauff, an SS officer who was responsible for the murder of at least 100,000 people and was wanted by the Allies as a war criminal, was employed by the Israeli secret service. Instead of bringing him to justice it paid him for his services and helped him escape to South America. Documents of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) that have been released over the past several years show that the Americans were aware that Rauff's case was not exceptional.

A CIA memorandum dated March 24, 1950 describes the relations between the Israel agent Edmond (Ted) Cross, whose name is deleted on this document, and a Nazi named Janos Walberg: "Subject's engagement be [sic] the Israeli Intelligence Service would fit into the picture as revealed by talks with X with [Edmond (Ted) Cross a.k.a. Magen or Crowder] consisting in the utilization of former Nazi elements for observation and penetration in the Arab countries. The attempt to send the well-known former SS Colonel Walter Rauff to Egypt having failed, the Israeli Service with all probability (however this has not yet been confirmed) had engaged Subject [Walberg], whose sentiments and past would arouse no suspicions in Egypt that he is a Jewish agent."
