The “Nazi collaborator” who struck a deal with the Germans

In this news article, you can read about Rezso Kasztner, the man who saved Hungarian Jews from the Nazis during the Holocaust:

Auschwitz-Wartime 3

Hungarian Jews who were sent to  Auschwitz-Birkenau

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

A Jewish man [Kasztner] hailed as a Holocaust hero for saving thousands [of Jews] from the gas chambers during World War II was actually a Nazi collaborator, it has been claimed.

Journalist and lawyer Rezso (AKA Rudolf) Kasztner was known for his role as an underground leader – but new research suggests he was a “conscious tool” [of the Nazis] in the Holocaust.

Paul Bogdanor, an expert on Kasztner, believes the man actually helped the Nazis to murder almost half a million Jewish men, women and children during Hitler’s ‘Final Solution’.

Until now, the Hungarian [Kasztner] was considered a hero for rescuing fellow Jews from the clutches of the [Nazi] Gestapo.

He smuggled them out of Budapest on a secret train bound for the free world following the German invasion [of Hungary].

End quote

I blogged about the Hungarian Jews on this previous blog post:

And on this previous blog post:

Most of the Holocaust survivors, who are out on the lecture circuit today, teaching young children about the Holocaust, were Hungarian Jews who survived Auschwitz.

    The story of Israel Kasztner, a Hungarian Jew who negotiated with Adolf Eichmann for the lives of thousands during the Holocaust. And a trial and verdict that stamped him as the “man who sold his soul to the devil.”

  3. Why would anyone want to exterminate that bunch of amiable old rascals that we see in the photo image above.

    These gentlemen are completely out of time and place. Fancy walking around modern 20th century Europe looking as if you’ve just emerged from a Wild West Hollywood movie set. They are at least 80 years out of time, and I’m pretty certain that characters looking like this were a dime-a-dozen in Dodge City back in the year 1860.

    The Nazis probably took pity on these Hungarian Jews, and wanted to help bring them into the modern word by re-training them for the future inside the wartime labour camps.

  4. To “survive” a concentration camp is in most cases gross hyperbole. It isn’t customary to say of (military) veterans that they “survived” their military service, though it is common (and often justified) to say that combat veterans survived combat.

    Myself, I prefer to say that concentration-camp veterans “experienced” a concentration camp, or even “were detained” of “served time” at a concentration camp(s).

    The modal concentration-camp inmate had it a thousand times better than the modal combat veteran, particularly German ones toward the bitter end of the war (which was, by the way, a “victory” only for ONE side. A balanced view recognizes that it was also a defeat at the same time, for a lot of people who matter a great deal).

  5. Typical HoloHoax drivel….most of the Jews survived to tell their stories of doom and gloom.
    So many of them survived the question comes up then who died…..but they always managed to weasel in the gas chamber story because without that their martyrdom would be just a fart in the wind.
    Of course there are those who thought the Jews were killed but actually ended up in Russia and Parts Unknown but our favorite Holohuxsters here seem to think that they all were all killed.
    The whole purpose of collecting the Jews was for them being used as a much needed work force during the war and to send them East to Russia when the Germans captured more land there but it obviously didn’t work out that way because the Germans were defeated but still many did end up in places where no one knew where they were.
    Looking back at it today it would have been great if all the Jews were sent to Russia. But they had to survive to torment us with their lies today.
