Yaakov Meidad (1919-2012) was born in Breslau, Germany. His mother was a teacher, and his father was a director of a hospital ward after serving as a medical officer in WWI. Their only son, he immigrated on his own to Palestine in 1934, at the age of 15. His parents remained behind and were murdered in the holocaust, his mother in Auschwitz, and his father in Terezinstadt.

Meidad was in charge of the logistic aspects of the abduction of the Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann, carried out in Argentina in May 1960 under the command of the Mossad chief at the time, Isser Harel. Among other things, Meidad rented the cars and apartments used for the capture and was one of the Mossad operatives who guarded Eichmann at the apartment he was held in until he was smuggled to Israel.
