Eichmann, condemned lo the [allows as a major figure in the S'azi slaughter of six million European Jews, claimed during lis trial he was only carrying out orders and had pointed a finger at Globke.

He did not ask during Ihe trial, however, foi Globkc to be called as a witness. Adenauer has repeatedly de- fended Globke. wlio claimed that while serving in the Hitler regime he saved Jews' lives even at the risk of his own. Globfce is now Adenauer's per- sonal aide. If tile Supreme Court calls him lo testify, West German law requires that he get permis sion from the im- mediate he ap pears before the court.
