Israeli interrogator of top Nazi Adolf Eichmann buried in Berlin alongside wife

With the words of the Kaddish and a sprinkle of earth over his remains, the Israeli official who interrogated Adolf Eichmann has been buried in Berlin, not far from the house where the Nazi who helped organize the Holocaust outlined his genocidal plans in 1942.

The choice of Avner Less' burial place was coincidence, but his son Alon Less says his father would have been "quite pleased" at the irony.

The burial Friday brought Avner Less together with his wife, Vera, whose remains were moved from a Hamburg cemetery — fulfilling a pledge Alon made to him on his deathbed to bury them together in their native Germany.

Alon says his parents lost most of their families in the Holocaust but felt holding on to hatred doesn't "solve any problems."
