Kasztner's Train

December 2008

“Anna Porter’s book on the genocide in Hungary’s Jewish communities is the best book on the Holocaust by a Gentile ever written and rivals Prof. Michael Mariss’ holocaust work on the subject. Anna Porter is an absolute marvel as a historian of the Nazis and the Jews in Hungary. Her book gives you the smell of death of Adolf Eichmann.”

“Not only did Kasztner strike a deal with the notorious Nazi Adolf Eichmann to buy the freedom of a train full of Jews, but the criteria for who got on the train were largely determined by their ability to pay. It’s a fascinating story about a Hungarian Jew who had the chutzpah to bargain with the Nazis. As Porter sees it, ‘If you’re in hell, who do you negotiate with but the Devil?’”
