A few more of history's "Monsters"

A great article appeared recently in the LA Times about the capture and trial of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann, who I have mentioned several times in relation to "Comrade Duch." Read it here.

A commenter suggested a few days ago that Duch might also have some traits in common with Franz Stangl, commandant of the Treblinka extermination camp. I do not know much about him, but will definitely read Gitta Sereny's Into that Darkness, in which she probes Stangl's influences and motivations, as soon as I can get my hands on a copy.
