Who is Reszo Kasztner?

Rezso Kasztner, known as the Jewish Schindler, negotiated face to face with Adolf Eichmann, rescuing 1700 Jews on a train to Switzerland, and may have saved tens of thousands more lives. Yet Kasztner was condemned as a traitor in his adopted country of Israel; accused as a collaborator in a libel trial and verdict that divided a nation and forever stamped him as the ‘man who sold his soul to the devil.’ It was a verdict overturned by Israel’s Supreme Court but too late for Kasztner. He was ultimately assassinated by Jewish right-wing extremists in Tel Aviv in 1957. (Killing Kasztner)
