"Hero or traitor? 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 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"--Packaging

Le juif qui négocia avec les nazis Killing Kasztner : the Jew who dealt with nazis( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'histoire stupéfiante d'un Juif qui, après avoir sauvé les siens, fut accusé de trahison. Rezsö Kasztner, considéré comme " le Schindler juif" négocia en personne avec Adolf Eichmann pour sauver 1700 Juifs, convoyés en train vers la Suisse en 1944. Ce fut une des plus grandes opérations de sauvetage entreprises pendant la Shoah. Pourtant, en Israël où il avait émigré, Kasztner fut considéré comme un traître, accusé d'avoir pactisé avec l'ennemi lors d'un procès dont le verdict divisa le pays et marqua à jamais Kasztner du sceau infamant de " l'homme qui vendit son âme au diable ". Il mourrut assassiné par des militants d'extrême droite à Tel Aviv en 1957. (Doriane)
Killing Kasztner the Jew who dealt with Nazis by Gaylen Ross( Visual )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To an even greater degree than Oskar Schindler, Dr. Israel Kasztner, a Hungarian Jew, played a key role in saving the lives of well over 1,000 Jews from the Holocaust (1,600 in Kasztner's case; 1,200 in Schindler's), but a fascinating and deeply sad irony lays buried in the differences between the men's stories: Schindler was a Nazi party member who manipulated the Gestapo in such a way that it enabled him to save said individuals, and he died a veritable hero; Kasztner was a Jew who bargained with Adolf Eichmann for the salvation of the 1,600 (whom he shuttled off to Switzerland on a train), and was not ultimately praised as a hero, but branded a traitor by his own people. This occurred largely because the notion of bargaining with the Nazis struck many as morally unacceptable (indeed, a greater moral infraction, in the eyes of some, than simple party membership). Kasztner's tale speaks volumes about the complex loyalties, conflicting allegiances, and deep-seated confusion at the heart of World War II, and those are the gray areas explored by director Gaylen Ross in this documentary of Kasztner's life. The film ultimately poses key questions about the extent to which collaboration with the enemy is morally acceptable in a time of war; it reveals the extent to which Kasztner touched innumerable lives, and features deeply moving interviews with Kasztner's family (who are still attempting to restore his legacy), even as it also features conversations with Kasztner's political opponents and detractors

Gli 'zombi', i morti viventi, hanno invaso gli Stati Uniti. Il terrore dilaga. Quattro ardimentosi - due soldati, uno bianco e uno di colore, un uomo e una donna, funzionari di una rete televisiva - cercano scampo in elicottero. La scarsità di carburante, però, li costringe ad atterrare sul tetto di un enorme supermercato, già occupato dagli zombi. Mentre i morti viventi, che si cibano di carne umana, tentano di sopraffarli, i quattro riescono - dopo avere eretto una sicura barriera tra loro e gli assedianti - a costruirsi nel supermercato un rifugio, nel quale attendere tempi migliori. Purtroppo una banda di teppisti motorizzati scopre la loro presenza: dietro di loro arrivano anche gli zombi. Dalla carneficina finale si salvano soltanto il nero e la donna, che è incinta
