Kasztner's Train: The True Story of an Unknown Hero of the Holocaust : Rezso Kasztner is a true Holocaust hero, in the same rank as Oskar Schindler, Raoul Wallenberg, and Carl Lutz. A Hungarian lawyer and journalist turned Jewish rescue leader, he is directly responsible for getting 1,684 Jews to Switzerland in 1944 and by war's end had probably saved another 100,000 lives. In the last days, he traveled to several concentration camps in a desperate attempt to save thousands of inmates from execution. Why, then have these other men become heroes while Kasztner has been accused of "selling his soul to the devil"? In this extraordinary book, Anna Porter tells his story.
